  • Site Plan
  • Market Analysis
  • Identifying the Most Suitable Capital Stack Options
  • Cost Estimations
  • Pro-forma
  • Financial Checklist
  • Pitch Presentation Deck

Industry-specific experts, such as architects, engineers, bankers, marketers, and more, will provide guidance throughout the workshop. Class size will be small and broken into groups to ensure adequate and individualized technical assistance for each project. Students will receive professional mentorship valued at over $3,000.The class is best suited for projects in which the participant has site control over a parcel under three acres, and that have an initial vision of what to build/renovate on the site.
