Driving Innovation in Affordable Housing
Fairstead Ventures invests in and deploys leading-edge technologies across Fairstead’s affordable housing portfolio. By prioritizing investments in decarbonization, energy efficiency, and sustainability we retrofit the aging affordable housing stock to create state-of-the-art living environments. Fairstead Ventures acts as a strategic investor piloting innovative products and services at its properties and scaling new and proven technologies to enterprise level.
Making our communities more connected, sustainable, and resilient.
The creation of Fairstead Ventures advances our dedication to fundamentally changing the standards in the housing industry, particularly at the intersection of sustainability and affordability. By utilizing our capital and expertise in private equity and venture investing, we will bring innovative solutions to affordable housing nationwide.
For too long, affordable housing has been underserved in tech, even though the impact could be immense. I will be looking for innovative new startups to invest in and pilot at our properties, as well as VC firms to partner and co-invest with, to green our communities and improve the health of our residents. I am honored to work with the Fairstead team to ensure affordable housing benefits from advancements in the tech industry and bring our leadership team's vision to life.
Fairstead is an ideal partner. Their team has the foresight to invest in environmentally-friendly and energy efficient new technologies, and the ability to scale them with a national portfolio. We look forward to working closely with Fairstead to bring our smart cogeneration boilers to communities that need a green and economical solution, and to have their guidance as board members as we grow our company.
