InfraShares is an online crowdfunding platform that raises private equity and debt investment in public infrastructure projects (renewable energy, toll-roads, bridges, mass-transit, etc.) developed through Public-Private Partnerships (P3’s) between public agencies and private developers. InfraShares takes the successful model of crowdfunding investment for commercial real estate and applies it to public infrastructure. InfraSahers was founded by Brian Ross and in 2015 after seeing the need for community investment in privately financed infrastructure. Brian is passionate about helping to develop needed public infrastructure by providing broad-based direct investment opportunities to the general public.
Brian brings 10 years of experience in civil engineering, construction management, and infrastructure finance. Brian's experience as an asset manager on public-private partnerships gives him unique insight into the benefits of InfraShares over the current model. Brian is a reserve officer in the Army Corps of Engineers, and deployed in support OEF in 2011. His time in Afghanistan as a Platoon Leader brings real world leadership experience to the team. Brian holds an MBA from UC Berkeley Haas School of Business and a Masters' in Construction Engineering Management from Stanford University.
In addition, InfraShares has a strong stable of advisors who are experts in the fields of project finance and infrastructure development.
