Chairman/Co-Founder - Andrew Roettger
The Catalyst Opportunity Zone Impact Fund (COZIF) brings together funding, technology, and strategic partners to invest at scale in high impact projects across the United States. COZIF is the first fund of its kind to use data analytics and machine learning to identify and evaluate potential projects and businesses based on hundreds of datapoints then put investors capital to use on profitable projects that can transform a community. We work with mayors, economic development officers, and city planners to plan exactly how a particular project will help their communities achieve its objectives. By analyzing the investment climate of each project and aligning ourselves closely with city planners and community leaders, we are able to get preferential access to projects at their earliest stages and maximize deal flow. We invest not just in real estate, but in businesses that are pivotal to community reinvigoration. The Fund uses data driven analytics, interactive computation and AI to assist in maximizing returns for our investors, continually evaluate the portfolio as well as create positive social impact for the communities within which we invest.
