Before there is a company, there is a conversation. We want to be that first conversation.

Overview

At Westside, we work with big thinkers to bring their bold ideas to life. We believe that life is about passion, expertise, and fairness. We are committed to helping early stage entrepreneurs with capital and infrastructure.

We focus on businesses that complement real estate value chain in a variety of fields – from a cable company to a valve start-up. We significantly accelerate various business ideas in the real estate space through leveraging our own real estate portfolio and our industry relationships to proof the concept or substantially grow the business. We provide capital and facilitate immediate growth.

We believe our job as venture capitalists is to magnify the creative power of entrepreneurs through relationships, education and resources essential to their success. We often write the first large check a company receives. We aren’t afraid to assume the responsibilities of a lead investor that brings growth and strategic direction.
 

Our Approach

  • Find

    We find cutting edge businesses that fit in the real estate value chain and challenge convention to unlock innovation.

  • Foster

    We provide venture capital and facilitate the businesses’ development through the infrastructure and industry specific relationship we bring to the table.

  • Fund

    Once we grow the businesses, we facilitate further capital funding in a strategic position alongside with our other investment holdings or, in selected cases, we exit our investment.

 

Our Focus

We invest in businesses that directly benefit from our existing real estate holdings. We focus on interdependent alignments within our investment portfolio. Our goal is to use the investment capital we provide to facilitate growth while using our real estate portfolio as leverage to grow the business.

We like to invest in technology related start-ups that make everyday life better and cheaper. We always look at how a business increases quality of life and decreases cost burdens. Our interests are opportunistic - from media companies to utility businesses all the way to real estate related cryptocurrency start-ups.

We understand the importance of technology and innovation in the real estate space. We believe the way people live, work, and play is influenced by the solutions they are offered to enjoy the living, working and play environments they are in. We contribute to an ongoing creation of new business ideas that result in an easier life.
