When You Give it all You’ve Got Nothing to Lose

Wes Hartshorn will discuss the long vision it takes to develop and make change in a neighborhood. His experience of developing abandoned houses in Dayton over the last 15 years proves his dedication to have a long vision and seeing it through.  The current project is the Silos development – 1.5 acres of downtown Dayton with an initial investment of $2.7 million. With another $5 million over the next 3 years. I bought the land, abated issues and cleared the environmental process to attract investment, all this with my personal money not knowing if it would work. An initial investment of $600,000. Expanding on this thought is to meld the feel-good motivation with the pragmatic approach of angel investing in Real Estate development.
