After nearly 15 years in real estate development and private equity, Poonam launched StealthForce (the gig economy of real estate) to solve the inefficiency in resourcing for real estate investment insights and human capital. StealthForce provides project-based investment talent, insights, and third-party reports, worldwide and on-demand. Having worked with small local developers as well as international multi-billion dollar investors, and having led asset management efforts around the globe, she recognized a universal need. Drawing on experience as the 13th employee at The Gerson Lehrman Group (the first expert network, focused on public investors, now valued at over a billion dollars), as well as over a decade in real estate development and investing, she launched StealthForce as the real estate investment industry’s answer to the Gig Economy. A Harvard undergraduate and Wharton MBA, she was previously Global Deputy to the Head of Real Estate Asset Management for Partners Group, a $40 billion global private equity fund. She has been seen in The New York Times, Inc. Magazine, Harvard Business Review, Commercial Observer, Exame Brasil and more, and is also an author who has published four books in five languages which have been printed worldwide.
