David Drake and Congressman David Schweikert keynote at the 2014 Investor Provider Leadership Summit
David Drake, Chairman of VictoriaGlobal.co, and Congressman Schweikert will lead talks among real estate industry leaders on October 6-7, 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona.
David Drake, founder and chairman of LDJ Capital, a New York City-based family office, and Arizona 6th District Congressman David Schweikert who co- authored the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, or JOBS Act, of 2012, will keynote in this summit. They will talk about the economy, small and medium sized businesses, finance and mega trends propelling the financial leadership of the country.
Drake is a strong supporter of the real estate industry and a proponent of enabling real estate crowdfunding to support startups. He strongly lobbied for the US JOBS Act, in Congress and the EU Commission. For this work he was made a delegate by the US Commerce Department to the EU Commission in Brussels and Rome in 2012 and was invited as a thought leader to the White House Champions of Change ceremony in Washington DC in 2013.
David Drake, who also founded and head the financial media conglomerate The Soho Loft Media Group, says “For the last 3 years, we have strived to be at the forefront of creating the transition from private offerings to public offerings in investor relations, corporate communication and business intelligence. By allowing private offerings to behave like public companies, each will have a voice and a corporate identity that will enable them to raise money under the JOBS Act, through advertising.”
He adds further, “The private companies are not used to act and advertise like public companies. Consequently, the financial media package solutions that we have been working on since the JOBS Act underlying laws were consolidated are needed immediately. Having private companies act like public companies in advertising a corporate profile is something they don't understand yet, and we are here to give them a turnkey solution. This will not only allow these private companies to be more competitive than others, but they would be able to raise capital much faster since they will have a corporate profile and corporate identity that's easily found online.”
According to David, “There is a huge opportunity for a company to work with us. This new law can be applied to every single company in North America, be it a small or a big firm.”
He also added, “The macro perspective is necessary to understand the players and the law, so as to translate what is happening between different divisions, from lawyers to legal compliance, to marketing to what is alright and what is not.”
David says, “People are giving hundreds, thousands and millions of dollars online and yet they refuse to speak to the CEOs when making these private investments.”
“We have reviewed only a couple of technology solutions from the hundreds out there,” says David, and “that qualifies to make you compliant with existing laws and we know who they are and we have made arrangements to work with all of them without being biased.”
The theme for this year’s summit is “Residential Rentals as the Mainstream Retirement Asset: Helping you sell & serve this emerging trillion – dollar market”. The two-day event will discuss the following topics:

AndrewWaite, President and CEO of NEXZUS Publishing Group, has been big on helping the real estate investing industry and enlightening investors on how to make real estate properties part of their investment portfolio. He says, “Most of the real estate investment was Mom and Pop owning a couple of doors, a house, a small apartment building, a duplex or whatever, they were renting. Maybe they bought it in a distressed condition and then renovated to rent it at retail, but whatever it was they didn’t define themselves as investors.”
