ieCrowd has also broken into “CNBC’s Crowdfinance 50 Index,” rising rapidly to emerge within the top 10 companies employing crowdfunding to finance its growth.

“We are thrilled that allowing individual investors, and not just big banks or funds, to invest in a company dedicated to addressing some of our biggest global health challenges is resounding so well,” said Amro Albanna, CEO of ieCrowd. “Our leadership in the concept of ‘crowd capitalism’ is growing a significant community of investors worldwide.”

The company’s lead product, Kite Shield, is a 100% DEET-free spray which when applied renders humans virtually invisible to mosquitoes (including aedes egeypti that carry the Zika Virus) by blocking the mosquito’s olfactory sense of smell which it uses to locate humans.

ieCrowd’s second technology, Nuuma, is a nanotube chip that gives cellphones and other smart devices the ability to smell by enabling such devices to measure air pollution, alcohol in exhaled breath, food spoilage and even bad breath. Additionally, using Nuuma to potentially detect various diseases at their earliest stage through breath analysis is of key interest to several leading medical institutions.

RealtyShares Taps 75 Investors to Raise $1.5 Million for 192-Unit Family Apartment Complex in Columbus, Ohio

Real Estate Equity Crowdfunding Funds Cardinal Creek Townhomes, which has a 70% Occupancy Rate and Close Proximity to Major Employment Centers and Adjacent to a New School/Sports Complex

San Francisco, CA – RealtyShares has raised $1.5 million dollars for a 192-unit multi-family complex in Columbus, Ohio from its national network of investors. The deal was sponsored on the platform by Hamilton Real Estate Capital, a value-oriented investment firm focused on medium to large apartment complexes. More than 75 investors took part in the raise for the Cardinal Creek Townhomes in Bexley to fund the renovation, maintenance, and management of the 35 buildings on the $5.9 million property.

“We believe this project will provide our investors with an attractive return profile given the risk,” said Eli Glanz, Principal at Hamilton. “Working with RealtyShares has given us access to a new group of investors in a straight-forward and quick process. We felt the amount of equity needed and the rationale for the investment was the perfect fit.”

Since this is an equity deal, the return ultimately realized by investors will depend upon the distributions from the project and the value of the property whenever it’s sold. While this is the first deal on the platform for Hamilton, it is the second notable crowdfunded project in Columbus in recent months. In June, 80 of RealtyShares’s investors funded over a million dollars of joint venture equity for the purchase of Courtyard by Marriott Columbus West.

“Columbus, and Bexley in particular, is seeing tangible rent growth and a falling vacancy rate with minimal new inventory slated to open,” said Bryan Shultz, Vice President of Commercial Equity at RealtyShares. “The Cardinal Creek Townhomes location is intriguing, with close proximity to major employment centers and adjacent to a new school and sports complex. The property already boasts a high occupancy rate, with more than 70 percent of the units recently renovated. Most importantly, our investors are often compelled by strong track records, and Hamilton has owned or advised on over $350 million in assets like this since 2005. It is an ideal partner for a deal like this.”

RealtyShares, one of the top real estate crowdfunding sites,  is transforming the real estate investment landscape by connecting borrowers and sponsors to debt and equity capital from accredited and institutional investors, across an array of financing products. Private investments are highly illiquid and risky and are not suitable for all investors. Through the RealtyShares website, these investors can browse investment opportunities, perform due diligence, invest online and have 24/7 access to an investor dashboard to watch how their investments are performing.
