Inc. magazine recently revealed that Fund That Flip is No. 42 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Fund That Flip also ranks No. 4 of the fastest-growing real estate companies in the United States. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—independent small businesses.
Launched in 2014, Fund That Flip provides short-term loans to experienced real estate redevelopers who buy and renovate residential properties. After origination, Fund That Flip offers accredited and institutional investors the opportunity to purchase fractional shares of the loan and earn an 8-9% annualized yield.
Fund That Flip participated in the NYC Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator (ERA), leading to Fintech Venture Fund, an Atlanta based early-stage investor, leading the company’s seed round in 2016. ERA also participated in the round. Since then, the company has realized exponential growth, doubling its loan origination volume and customer base each year, and achieving 6018% revenue growth. This month, Fund That Flip announced a $11 million raise from growth equity firm Edison Partners of Princeton, NJ. We plan to use the additional capital to expand its market share of the growing residential real estate investment industry.
