What was originally intended as a boost for small businesses, has turned into a massive revolution in real estate.
The whole thing started with the JOBS Act of 2012.
JOBS Act stands for 'Jumpstart Our Business Startups' and when it was passed the idea was to grow companies.
But what it did was to allow real estate development companies to advertise their deals for the first time in nearly 80 years.
This might not seem like a big deal, but think about this.
Until they were allowed to advertise they had to go to the same people, again, and again, and again, whenever they wanted to raise money for their deals.
And although they and their investors got rich over the years, it meant that ordinary Americans were cut out of some of the most valuable real estate deals in the country.
Now, for the first time, almost everyone has access to real estate deals the previously were the exclusive domain of the ultra wealthy of America.
This course explains:
- The background to why you have, until now, been precluded from investing with the best developers in the best deals.
- How it is possible now.
- Introduction to some of the types of investments you can make.
- Where you can find the deals.
- What to watch for and what to NEVER do when investing in Crowd Fund Real Estate deals online.

Adam Gower Ph.D.
Veteran Real Estate Professional, Educator
Adam Gower is a bilingual, 30-year veteran in real estate, banking, and finance who earned his Ph.D. in banking history at the University College London. He has held senior management positions at some of the largest companies and institutions in the world and is recognized as an industry thought leader on the impact of crowd funding on real estate. During the 1990’s he lived in Japan, working as the President and CEO of a major Hollywood studio developing their real estate portfolio throughout the Asia Pacific Region. After the financial crisis of 2008 had taken hold, Dr. Gower was recruited to advise the largest regional bank in California on their asset disposition strategy, assisting them to divest of a large portfolio of real estate collateralized loans, and subsequently in doubling the institution’s size.
Dr. Gower lives and works in California and teaches the only fully accredited course in the country that focuses on Crowd Fund Real Estate investment, a transformational Fintech solution to real estate finance. His first book Jacob Schiff and the Art of Risk, (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) examines how investment banks mitigated risk in the early 20th Century and his work linking regulatory changes of today with practices described in this book are considered by many as being groundbreaking. His second book, Leaders of the Crowd, (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2019) is based on his internationally syndicated podcast series at the National Real Estate Forum. Dr. Gower is known as the creator of Principles of Crowd Fund Real Estate Investing, a series of online courses focused on educating a new generation of High Net Worth individuals and families in how to prudently invest in real estate for yield, while prioritizing principal preservation.
