Real estate crowdfunding is one of the hottest investments right now and Fundrise is leading the charge. Lead by co-founder Dan Miller, the firm recently chocked up a $38M investment round and many top real estate personalities participated. Why? Have you ever asked yourself why it’s easier to invest in a stock in China than it is in an office building around the corner? It just is, but if Fundrise’s brand of real estate crowdfunding takes off, that all will change. Dan Miller joins us on Tradestreaming to discuss the case for real estate investing and tells us just how Fundrise is building a crowdfunding investment platform and service for the future.

3. Mastercard's Marcy Cohen on launching and growing a podcast

Mastercard's Marcy Cohen on launching and growing a podcast

Welcome to the Tearsheet Podcast. I'm Zack Miller. We're experimenting with an interesting new series on the podcast called Marketing Talk. We're talking to top finance and fintech marketers sitting on the front lines of their business, hustling to bring in the next cohort of customers. As much as TechCrunch makes this stuff look easy, it isn't and we want to hear from marketers — in their own words — what's working for them, how they're structuring their teams, and what channels are delivering. I don't know about you but I consume a hefty amount of podcast content. I spend less time streaming music, less time watching videos and more time listening to recorded audio. It's estimated that 26 percent of all Americans over the age of 12 listen to podcasts. And we're not just drive-by listeners, either. We're listening to at least seven podcast episodes every week. This is a huge opportunity for financial marketers who made a living using television and radio to brand their products. MasterCard has been an early rider on the podcast train. Last year, the payments firm launched Fortune Favors the Bold (https://www.mastercard.us/en-us/consumers/fortune-favors-the-bold.html), a podcast about the unique and changing role money plays in our lives, and about what happens when we take risks, take control and redefine our relationship with it. The podcast was well-received, both critically and among Mastercard's target audience. The podcast's audience grew by 55 percent between episode one and five, and the company is about to drop season two any day now. Marcy Cohen, svp of digital content creation at Mastercard, joins me to discuss the genesis of Mastercard's podcast activities. She shares what's worked with the show and the firm's strategy to use the podcasting medium to market to the firm's own employees, in addition to acquiring new customers and branding in the market. She also explains how the firm used an agency to strategize and produce its great content. Marcy Cohen is my guest today on the Tearsheet Podcast.

Many people have grown tired of passive investing. Sure, the data show that the more remove the human elements -- our evolutionary biases -- the better we perform in the stock market.

8. 006 How real estate investment firms are finding new investors with Groundbreaker

006 How real estate investment firms are finding new investors with Groundbreaker

Investors are flocking to real estate crowdfunding platforms to get access and invest in real estate and they're doing it in different ways: some platforms focus on investments in loans, others in equity, and others in professionally-lead large scale real estate projects. Grounbreaker.co, a new player in the real estate crowdfunding space, has taken a different approach. The company works closely with some of the largest global real estate firms to use crowdfunding to raise money from its existing investors and to attract a whole new class of investors. Co-founder and CEO Joey Jelinek joins your hosts, David and Zack, to talk about how the real estate industry is adjusting to this entirely new model for fundraising and what the future looks like for the entire real estate industry now that crowdfunding is proving itself viable. (Joey also shares some good resources with us to learn more about investing in real estate). In our news segment, we talk about whether or not there exists a new crowdfunding bum class -- and whether we need to donate or back every Tom, Dick, and Harry who throws up a crowdfunding campaign. Watson on Crowdfunding talks about $4 million -- the size of the recent investment in Spotify that occured on crowdfunding site, Microventures. Lastly, Starkup Nation delivers on his favorite crowdfunding campaign of the week and (not) surprisingly, it has to do with water balloons.

14. Getting investors excited about stocks again with Stockpile's Avi Lele

Getting investors excited about stocks again with Stockpile's Avi Lele

In a world of roboadvisors, index funds, and algo trading, investors have learned to cut costs and simplify their investing. In some markets, over 90% of all trading is done by machines and we know markets are moved by large indices, not retail investors It’s fair to say that we’ve lost that connection between an individual investor and the company behind a stock he or she owns. We may lack the connection but it’s also hard to come by the magic moment when an investor falls in love with a company and goes out to buy the stock to show his allegiance and affiliation. Founder and CEO of Stockpile Avi Lele joins us to talk about what it took to build a fractional share brokerage and how doing the small things right has positioned his company to just close a $15M investment round and launch in a big way. ***Thanks for joining us on Tradestreaming Radio -- I'm very grateful for your time.
