“You’re special, just like everyone else.” Unfortunately, this is as true in business as anywhere.

Specialize or die – in a world of investing options and democratized finance, that’s the challenge Vicinity welcomes “with aaaarms wide oooopen.” So what does make Vicinity special? The local asset class.

Haven’t heard of it? That’s ok, we made it up. The concept is simple enough, it starts with creating the opportunity for anyone to invest locally. But while a one-off local investment is fun, that was never our end goal. Vicinity is creating a path for investors to build their very own portfolio of local investments.

These investments represent an entirely new class of assets that you’re able to research and connect to. They span industries, growth stages, and return structures but share the common theme of proximity.

We believe our unique end goal(s) are two sides to the same coin. On one side: consistent, quality options for investors to seek potential returns from projects and ventures, making it easy to invest where they live. On the other side: access to local, passionate dollars for business owners and developers with the best ideas, not just the best networks. Combined, local businesses and investors have the potential to rewrite economic prosperity for their communities.

So what we’re trying to say is that we’re special… but only with help from “everyone else.”  😊
