It is the first US trip of 2020 for LMRE. Given the recent escalations we were slightly worried that COVID-19 would slow us down. Thankfully it has not, but as you would expect it is very much the talk of the town stateside.
I am delighted to finally introduce our Head of US, Xan Winterton. After months of gruelling training in London, Xan will be based out of NYC rolling out our East and West coast expansion.
Xan comes from a cyber security SaaS start up based in NYC which he successfully launched before he went to the dark side and joined the team.
We kick started the day with a meeting with Dave at Zigg capital who has done a series of impressive investments, within some of our current clients like VTS and Cherre, and many more. It is great for us to understand the market needs from an investors perspective as well as a founders insight. After that we met various friends in the industry and a new client Plotify. Plotify is a prop/fintech that is transforming property investment, making it frictionless to acquire and trade properties around the world and allow anybody to invest and trade in plots. They are already global and we are looking forward to assisting them with their expansion on both sides of the Atlantic.
After that we went to meet Storefront then ran home to change before our Tequila filled dinner party with Michael Beckerman and friends. It was a fantastic evening an we were delighted to be joined by such inspiring people.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon and growing this PropTech ecosystem and real estate revolution together.
