A VC Firm with Real Estate Relationships Like No Other
[Note from editor: The “Mastermind Showcase” highlights companies and news from members of the GEM. Today’s showcase: Second Century Ventures.]
Second Century Ventures is the strategic investment arm of the National Association of Realtors, the largest trade organization in the US, and invests in technology companies across real estate, financial services, banking, home services, and insurance. Dedicated to seeing the entrepreneurial spirit of real estate thrive, keeping the agent at the center of the transaction.
Docusign was one of its very first investments back in 2009 and has since grown to a market cap of more than 40 billion.
Second Century Ventures launched the REach accelerator in 2013, a nine month, highly selective program that provides companies with capital, meaningful partnerships, and and resources to fuel growth. They recently announced its 2020 class which represents a market capitalization of more than $400 million.
What we like: With ties to NAR’s 1.4 million members, deeply experienced executives, and a strong pool of mentors, there is no VC firm that can match its depth of industry relationships across real estate and adjacent industries.
