Step 5. Get To Know Us Better & Why EquityDoor Was Started
Step 5 of 10 | About EquityDoor
EquityDoor was founded by a small team with a big vision. We want to make investing in the income-based real estate market a reality for every potential investor.
Our management team and advisors have spent decades buying and selling real-estate and investment properties. At times, it has seemed just too difficult to clear all the hurdles of the traditional financing community.
EquityDoor was purpose-built to change that. By providing leading-edge technology that connects project owners and investors, EquityDoor provides an alternative to traditional banks and financing.
By eliminating the traditional cost, complexity and reliance on big banks and real estate insiders, EquityDoor opens the door to build real estate equity for anyone with as little as $1,000 to invest.

With a passion for emerging technologies and personal experience with property management, single and multi-family rentals, house flipping and real estate sales, Anderson brings a unique, hands-on perspective to EquityDoor.
“I’m excited to be leading the team that’s bringing a new path for real-estate investment to the everyday man and woman. Regulation Crowdfunding allows EquityDoor to connect mid-market project owners with interested investors who have been locked out of the real-estate market for far too long,” says Anderson.

“For decades I’ve seen both investors and project owners who were looking to raise capital searching for alternatives to traditional banking and finance. With EquityDoor and Regulation Crowdfunding, the market now has new options that are going to provide real-estate investors with options that were never available in the past. It’s so rewarding to play even a small role in this incredible market transition,” says Girdley.
