Find The Next Big Thing

Tired of the same old conference? We are too. We decided that for a conference to be worth your time, we needed to show you the latest trends and insights in the private money lending space that we’re seeing. We need to show you how you can raise and deploy capital more effectively. We need to show you what’s really going on in the owner-occupied space. But more importantly, we needed to provide you more value each and every time. Why Innovate 2018? The bigger question is – why not?

"We love this conference... and the thing we love the most about it, not only is the education that you get... but the best thing about it is the networking that we get out of it. Not just from the people that attend, but the people that are here as sponsors and holding the booths. It’s awesome the things that you learn from them. We have been able to share all kinds of business. I have picked up two great lenders that I work with, table funders, people that are buying our loans after we create them... it’s just wonderful. It’s an awesome conference and we will never miss it."
