Indiegogo Principal Adam Chapnick Bets Big on Real Estate Crowdfunding, Joins Upstart Platform AssetAvenue
Former Principal Exits VC-Darling Indiegogo to Oversee Strategy at Commercial Real Estate Platform Up-and-Comer
LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 1, 2014) - Adam Chapnick, former principal and employee number one with leading crowdfunding  platform Indiegogo, today announced that he is leaving the industry giant to join real estate crowdfunding company AssetAvenue. The company's first completed deal raised $485,000 from investors in less than 48 hours to acquire a commercial real estate loan backed by office space in New York City's prestigious Trump Palace. Chapnick believes real estate crowdfunding is on the precipice of becoming a major disrupting force in real estate investing, and chose to join AssetAvenue's team of highly experienced real estate and technology professionals,  betting big on a newcomer in one of the fastest-growing segments of the crowdfunding market.
 
"AssetAvenue's disruptive vision and the team's industry expertise are what set the company apart. The leadership team has decades of combined real estate experience, and they're focused on breaking  barriers, which is music to my ears," said Chapnick. "When [AssetAvenue CEO] David Manshoory shared the scale of what he's aiming to accomplish, I knew this was a mission I wanted to be a part of and the team I had to join. I can't wait for the impact we're going to make together." Chapnick joined Indiegogo as its first employee in 2009 and quickly helped the company grow into new markets and become one of the most successful crowdfunding platforms in the world. The company, which recently announced it raised a $40 million Series B round in January led  by prominent investors Kleiner Perkins and Institutional Venture Partners, has hosted more than 200,000 campaigns to date in over 175 countries, four languages and five currencies. Chapnick will be AssetAvenue's chief strategy officer, bringing his expansive network and crowdfunding expertise to revolutionize the real estate investment experience for real estate sponsors, lenders and retail and institutional investors. "We are thrilled that Adam has chosen AssetAvenue as his next home out of all the opportunities available to him," said Manshoory. "We're excited to couple one of the thought leaders in the crowdfunding industry with our real estate team to create an exceptional experience for our community." "Crowdfunding as a whole has been an incredibly revolutionary force in so many business verticals. It was thrilling to help drive this growth as the original player in the space," added Chapnick.
