How It All Began

The DiversyFund story begins with our founders and a shared goal to bring the wealth-building tools traditionally used by the 1% to the everyday investor. They combined their expertise in real estate investing and fund management with their drive to democratize investing for the middle class. This partnership led to the creation of DiversyFund and its institutional-quality offerings, which are now available to everyone through an innovative use of technology and a unique business model.

A Company You Can Trust

DiversyFund was SEC-qualified in November 2018. This means you can trust we are being transparent with our investing activities and that everything we do is under government oversight. To maintain SEC qualifications, we must regularly file financial documents and undergo annual audits to stay compliant with SEC regulations. This commitment to transparency provides assurance for our investors that we follow the highest compliance standards when it comes to managing our funds and their investments.

Our story


The idea was born

After years of making money for others the traditional way, Craig saw how the rich kept getting richer. In 2014, Craig decided there had to be a way to break the cycle and came up with the idea that eventually became DiversyFund. He wanted to open up wealth-building opportunities to all Americans, no matter their status in life.

MAY 2015

Open to all

An amendment was made to The Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, allowing companies like DiversyFund to open up investments to everyone. This was a huge step toward online investing for all.


Partnering with the right people

Craig partnered with Alan Lewis to formally start DiversyFund. With Alan’s corporate securities background as a corporate lawyer and investment banker on Wall Street, he and Craig shared the same mission of democratizing investing for everyone.


Laying the groundwork

We laid the groundwork to build the company we envisioned. It took a lot of time and effort getting our seed round and Series A funded, building a brand, bringing on the team, getting public oversight, and building our platform.


Public oversight

DiversyFund was qualified by the SEC in November 2018 to make our Growth REIT available to everyone. Having public oversight requires DiversyFund to disclose important financial and management information. With regular audits, investors can remain informed on all aspects of their investment.

APRIL 2019

Platform launch

We fully launched our investment platform, allowing individuals to invest in a portfolio of commercial real estate for $2,500.

JUNE 2019

Open to all

We received SEC qualification to lower the initial investment amount to $500, opening up the opportunity to even more Americans.


Tech updates

We are continually improving our platform. Coming soon are more updates to the investor dashboard and our app to make investing easier for everyone.
