Property coin gives you an exclusive opportunity to participate in a fully regulated coin that is backed by real estate assets and loans. To our knowledge, there is no way, currently, for investors to invest in an institutionalized, technology driven fix and flip investment strategy at scale in the U.S. or elsewhere. Traditionally, residential fix and flip strategies are only available to “country club” deals made by the ultra wealthy. Property Coin is changing that. We aim to democratize access to our investment strategy by giving investors the opportunity to share in the profits produced by our existing operational and technological platform.

Aperture is a California based real estate technology and investment company focused on the acquisition, rehabilitation and disposition of distressed residential real estate and writing loans to smaller investors with the same strategy.

In their careers, our team is estimated to have been involved in the closing of over $150B of real estate financing transactions, the flipping of over 3,000 properties, the origination of over $10B of mortgage loans and the creation of proprietary technology systems for some of the largest investment banks in the world.

To date, we have produced over 50% unlevered IRR’s on our investments.

His extensive teaching experience, which spans all levels from preschool through graduate school, includes having founded and run a private science summer school for elementary and middle school children and teaching more than fifty college classes in astronomy, physics, mathematics, and education. He has received numerous awards for his teaching and writing, including the American Institute of Physics Science Communication Award.

Dr. Bennett is the lead author of best-selling college textbooks in four distinct subject areas: astronomy, mathematics, statistics, and astrobiology (life in the universe); together, these books have sold more than 1.5 million copies. He has written six critically acclaimed books for general public: On the Cosmic Horizon (Addison Wesley, 2001); Beyond UFOs (Princeton University Press, 2008/2011), which was selected by Miami University as their Convocation book for all incoming students to read in 2008/9; Math for Life (Big Kid Science, 2014), which won the Colorado Book Award for general nonfiction; What is Relativity? (Columbia University Press, 2014); On Teaching Science (Big Kid Science, 2014); and A Global Warming Primer (Big Kid Science, 2016).

"Type R makes an impressive step towards reimagining how we live, work and lead, going beyond past thinking to draw on research, and a brave new vision for the future to help guide us to success in our complex world.”- Mary Robinson, President, Mary Robinson Foundation- Climate Justice & former President of Ireland

Forget Type As and Bs. The future lies with Type Rs-- the individuals, leaders, businesses, families and communities that turn challenges into opportunity in times of upheaval, crisis and change. In our new book we explore the process of Transformative Resilience. And, we look at the mindset, skills, and strategies of Type Rs who are finding ways to turn some of the most challenging of circumstances into opportunity — growing from the experience and springing forward rather than merely bouncing back — and ultimately making a larger contribution.

We share inspiring stories of Type Rs thriving during unprecedented world events and increasing global pressures. And we share the individual and collective triumphs of people coping with the stress of daily life and the disruption and challenges that disrupt our lives at some point. Our research spans the person and professional, the local and global, reaching across psychology, neuroscience, business and current affairs.

Type R also teaches leaders, businesses and organisations how to cultivate Type R vision and cultures, which is essential for thriving in disruptive change. Ultimately Type R shows that we can use challenges to innovate, create new strengths and grow. (Public Affairs/ Hachette Book Group, January 9, 2018)
