Guest Profile

Joel G. Block

Joel G. Block is the CEO of a real estate hedge fund that acquires distressed assets nationwide, plus he has been a principal in over 40 syndicated transactions throughout his career.

For much of the last 20 years, Joel was in the venture capital business - frequently on the entrepreneur side of the table. Though he has conceptualized, capitalized, operated and sold several companies, his favorite was the development of a personalized financial product which he sold to a Fortune 500 company in 1995.

In 2012, Joel formed a team to launch the Bullseye Capital Real Property Opportunity Fund, LLC, a real estate hedge fund that acquires distressed multi-family and commercial assets nationwide, adding value that is shared with investors. Joel is also a professional speaker and has delivered numerous lectures at university business schools, not to mention having produced and delivered hundreds of hours of paid programming to entrepreneurs all over the United States and beyond.

He is a recognized thought leader in the emerging CrowdFunding arena, speaking at conferences across the country and advising both entrepreneurs and investors how to profit from the recent changes in approaches to raising capital. He is also forming a specialized portal for investors to interact online with his sizable network of syndicators and fund managers.

I am a professional investor but the new hot topic in my business that affects Main Street is equity based CrowdFunding. It is perfect for the speaking community but no one has heard about it yet. Well have plenty to talk about. Do we need to convene in advance?
