Hudson Valley Startup Fund Announces New Investment in Equity Multiple.

For public release

Dec 3, 2020

Equity Multiple pools investor funds and provides the infrastructure for real estate fund investing, direct project investing and tax-deferred real estate investing.

Kingston, NY - Hudson Valley Startup Fund announces new investment in Equity Multiple.

Hudson Valley Startup Fund today announces its recent investment in Equity Multiple, Inc. Equity Multiple is an online platform built to enable investors to participate in pre-vetted, professionally managed, commercial real estate opportunities not typically available to investors interested in making lower-dollar investments. Equity Multiple pools investor funds and provides the infrastructure for real estate fund investing, direct project investing and tax-deferred real estate investing.

Founders Charles Clinton, CEO, and Marious Sjulsen, Chief Investment Officer, have deep experience in real estate law and private equity management, and focus on strategy and the sponsor side of the business. They have built a management team that includes professionals with strong backgrounds in real estate investing, marketing, technology and other critical operational areas.

The Equity Multiple platform provides an online portal to enable investors to select from various, pre-vetted real estate opportunities. Accredited investors are able to make relatively small investments into large real estate opportunities that they otherwise would not have access to, giving them the opportunity to better diversify their alternative asset portfolio allocation.

HVSF was attracted to the opportunity to invest in Equity Multiple by the strength and experience of their management team, the platform’s ease of use, the range of revenue streams available to the firm, and the strength of its deal pipeline.

​“We feel very strongly about the Equity Multiple business model and the deep experience of the team. This, along with the active support of SUNY New Paltz graduate and supporter Kenny Pasternak, we recognize Equity Multiple as a winning opportunity.” explained HVSF Managing Member, Jeffrey Werner.

“I always like to see people making money with me,” said Ken during a discussion with HVSF. Equity Multiple had developed all the technology for both the engaged investor and to administrate investments. Ken then came in to help them scale. He’s clearly satisfied with the progress and invited the HVSF to connect with Charles to explore the opportunity.
