Diving Deep into Opportunity Zones

Undeniably, there has been a tremendous amount of hype, speculation, and misinformation surrounding Opportunity Zones since the first zones were designated in 2019. On October 23, Connect Opportunity Zones promises to shed some much-needed light on the nation’s most talked about investment strategy. Is the program living up to its original promise in terms of the amount of capital being raised and how is that capital actually being deployed? Hear directly from industry leaders, major stakeholders, government officials, and others as they weigh in on CRE’s hottest topic.

Two Events, One Venue, Greater Value

This year, Connect Opportunity Zones will be co-located with Connect National Investment & Finance for a full day of CRE insight.

To register for both events at a discounted rate, fill out the Connect Opportunity Zones + Connect National Investment & Finance ticket during the registration process.

Doing Good: Social Impact Investing and Community Building

As opportunity zones were originally designed to stimulate economic development in underserved communities, it seems fitting to evaluate whether they will be able to deliver on that promise. Likewise, social impact investing continues to gain momentum as a preferred vehicle for funding opportunity zone projects like affordable housing, community reinvestment, and overall economic development. Hear from the people doing the projects on the elements at work and what creates success.

11:35am - 12:15pm:

Alternative Investments Through Opportunity Zones
