About the Course

Plan to join us for the much-anticipated Scalability and Monitoring of Place-Based Real Estate Investments, Local and Federal Stakeholders Unite webinar. Spaces are limited.

Place-Based Investment refers to a targeted approach in directing financial resources, development initiatives, and investments towards specific geographic areas or communities. This strategy aims to stimulate economic growth, improve infrastructure, enhance social services, and foster sustainable development within a designated locality or region.

Zoning and PBI's historic use as an equity-generating tool by government agencies, developers, community stakeholders, and public-private partnerships left much on the table. Fortunately, local and federal entities are uniting.

Why Attend?

PBIs, while aiming to stimulate economic growth and development in specific geographic areas, have these inherent weaknesses: 

  • Place-based investments (PBIs) are realizing their full potential to drive development, economic growth, and sustainable practices. Importantly, monitoring of PBIs is taking center stage at local, regional, and national levels.

  • These investments often face challenges related to scalability and sustainability. The benefits of focusing on a particular locality may not easily translate to a broader regional or national scale, limiting the overall impact.

  • The success of PBIs relies heavily on effective governance and administration, which can be challenging to achieve, especially in areas with limited institutional capacity. 

Who Should Attend: This webinar is ideal for developers, financiers, real estate-related professionals, business leaders, community engagement professionals, and anyone interested in building meaningful relationships with the communities they operate..
