Company Description

The investment world is starving for yield. The U.S. housing market is desperately in need of more inventory. And AlphaFlow is building the platform to connect these titan industries, bringing together two of the largest markets on the planet. On one side of our business, we are tapping $600 billion of real estate debt that gets done outside of banks every year, starting with the $75B fix-and-flip market. On the other side, we have some of the world’s best institutional investors coming to us to access these loans, which they’d love to invest in but the industry is too fragmented for them to participate. AlphaFlow solves that with our software, which creates a platform for these lenders to run their businesses and makes selling their loans seamless. Lenders get the capital they need to grow their businesses, and investors get access to this asset class in a modern, technology-driven way. The end result is that we’re now a leading platform for institutions to invest online in real estate debt.

Curated partnerships w/ best-in-class lenders across 40+ states

Security Description

An equity crowdfunding specific version of a SAFE used by crowdfunding portal Republic.

The issuer may roll over and not convert shares at the next financing round causing investors to lose out on some upside.
