Our mission is simple: we want to make Opportunity Zone investing as simple, collaborative, and impact-driven as possible. Our platform is a marketplace designed to bring together the three actors in the Opportunity Zone space: project sponsors, investors, and community/economic developers. Our community partners help identify and validate projects in their areas, so you can rest assured that listings are trustworthy and up-to-date. Our extensive toolkit of Opportunity Zone resources and our devoted Opportunity Zone partners will help bring your project exposure from the right investors at a local, regional, and national level. We believe that when opportunity knocks, you should answer it. The Opportunity Exchange helps bring the right people to your doorstep to make the Opportunity Zone investing process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Opportunity Zones and the infrastructure surrounding them are still in their infancy. Investors, projects, and communities lack a shared system to communicate, a central hub for Opportunity Zone knowledge, and a proper authority to legitimize and catalyze their endeavors. The Opportunity Exchange aims to be that connective tissue by facilitating connections and fostering investments in Opportunity Zones in a socially conscious way. We place a high credence on social impact metrics and aim to bring funding into areas that need it most.
