Jilliene Helman is the Co-founder & CEO of RealtyMogul.com, one of the first online marketplaces to revolutionize real estate investing, a category that was traditionally only available to wealthy investors. Her mission in launching the company was to simplify and expand real estate investing opportunities by connecting real estate companies and investors through cutting-edge technology.
With over 200 years of collective experience underwriting, managing, and acquiring over $5 billion in real estate across asset classes and markets nationally, Jilliene has built a world-class team of real estate and technology professionals at RealtyMogul.com, establishing a rigorous zero-based underwriting process that analyzes each potential deal from scratch through a combination of proprietary in-house analytics and risk assessment factors.
RealtyMogul spends over $1 million annually for the use of third-party data and technology to vet each deal. The process is so intensive, fewer than 1% of the requests reviewed by RealtyMogul pass its high underwriting standards.
Since its inception, RealtyMogul.com has amassed over 140,000 investors in its platform, seen over $300 million invested deals presented on the platform and returned $65 million to its investors. Jilliene has raised over $45million in venture capital from some of Silicon Valley’s biggest venture capital firms including Sorenson Capital and Canaan Partners, during a time when only 10% of global venture funding dollars went to female founded startups, according to a TechCrunch report - https: //techcrunch.com/2016/04/19/the-first-comprehensive-study-on-women-in-venture-capital/
