At AVANA, our name says it all. With ancient Sanskrit roots, the term references someone who is a “preserver” or a “protector,” which we are in many ways. First, we help entrepreneurs preserve and protect their wealth through small business real estate ownership. As we support entrepreneurs acquiring large real estate investments by providing purchasing and refinancing options, we also help create and maintain jobs all across America and spur growth in local economies. In terms of investing, we additionally provide opportunities for accredited investors to grow their wealth via our debt fund which is similar to marketplace investing, but we don’t invite investors to join us until after we have funded a project.
