Question

What do we do?

 

Answer: 

We help Investors, Banks, and Builders get what they want.  

Our focus is on helping you to structure and execute a Real Estate Syndication.

 

Our strategies offer a combination of target marketing and intellectual capital to bring growth to our clients.  We set companies up for success and reliable execution when raising capital by offering proven best practices and unique insights from a community of executives who understand the opportunities and challenges within the real estate finance industry. This approach equips our clients with the resources they need to raise capital for their companies.

Our sole focus on the real estate finance industry means that we are unrivaled in terms of experience and know-how. We ensure that a company can maximize the expertise of our network to achieve operational excellence, sustainable growth, and financial returns.

Is it time to expose your company to the people that invest in real estate?

 

Structuring capital investments using Syndication is the key playbook that can revolutionize the way you do business and achieve your company goals.  If you’ve had success and want to take your company to the next level, Open Source Capital can show you the way to raise capital for any size deal.

 

Our Services

We craft results-based capital campaigns for a wide spectrum of commercial and residential clients, including amenity and resort developers, homebuilders, condo developers,  apartment developers, office developers, hotel developers, operators, and syndicators.

We provide unique ways for you to connect with accredited investors who understand investing in specific projects.  Our expertise is in structuring and modeling projects that allow investors to act quickly when considering various investment opportunities.

Our goal is to help you create a lasting relationship with sophisticated investors, in part by:

  • Emphasizing a fundamental alignment of interest
  • Providing for flexibility to react to circumstances as they occur
  • Maintaining investor communication and awareness

We help you supply a wealth of information to your targeted investors. Wall Street has historically relied on a strong sales force rather than a much more analytically driven capital raising process. We believe that by using a transparent and data-driven method, investors will be able to find your company and you will be able to raise capital at a significantly lower cost.

 

About Open Source Capital

We help sponsors in the real estate business achieve their full potential.  We actively engage, through strategic counsel, administrative support, detailed financial analysis and stress-testing, effective capital campaigns for clients looking to raise both debt and equity capital.  Using our relationships with investors, banks, and online real estate investment portals, we help companies secure capital to finance ground-up and value-add projects.  Our goal is to create value for investors by vetting middle market builders and developers and fostering their success.  By focusing on the people, the market, the investment structure, and the project, we balance the risk and reward throughout the capital stack.

Open Source Capital is building a global investment network by:

  1. Providing Sponsors- a results-based outsource solution to allow sponsors to directly engage in the capital raising process.
  2. Providing Investors- third-party due diligence
  3. Providing banks- high-quality senior loans
  4. Providing Real Estate Portals – high quality and vetted deal flow
  5. Providing Registered Investment Advisors and Broker/Dealers- alternative real estate investment options

The Open Source Capital team has participated in over 210 real estate investments to an underserved market of mid-sized businesses.  In the real estate sector, we focus on Sponsors developing projects from $30 million to $150 million, primarily in urban infill markets or underdeveloped parcels within already developed areas.  These Sponsors are typically building or managing “market-appropriate” properties in the respective markets in which they operate.  For over two decades we have identified capital inefficiencies common to these small and medium size projects and small- to mid-sized Sponsors, and we have focused on originating participating mezzanine loans and preferred equity investments to capitalize on these inefficiencies.

We build independent financial models and marketing campaigns that support Online Syndication based on our own experience and research.

OUR EXPERIENCE

George Henderson Jr.

Kyle Meyer

 

 

 

 

 

 

Open Source Capital’s senior management has worked together for over 25 years and has developed an institutional grade infrastructure.  The principals, George Henderson Jr. and Kyle Meyer have over 80 years of combined experience in investing, banking, development, construction, loan servicing and asset management.  The team focuses its activities in markets where we have human assets on the ground and a deep intuitive understanding of the market.  The corporate office is located in Fort Lauderdale, FL

OSC’s technical knowledge complements its banking and investment structuring experience for many types of real estate including low and mid-rise condominiums, apartments, townhomes, renovations and single-family homes.  To assess risk and appropriately suggest pricing for an application, OSC examines many projects and market factors, including assessing the project’s marketing position, local market and the Sponsor’s track record.  OSC brings investors and sponsors together to create attractive transactions where risk and return are well balanced.

Our reputation, expertise, and history of established contacts with banks and developers have generated a strong foundation for new and repeat business. OSC’s experienced underwriting department understands the need for appropriate documentation and efficient processing. An error-free investment file adds value. This benefits both the client and the investor. The complexity of construction lending is well understood by OSC’s professional staff.  Our experienced managers ensure syndications are thoroughly prepared and documented.  This, in turn, ensures sound credit decisions and enhances credit quality.  External audits have consistently concluded that our files are thoroughly documented and are of high quality.

Our ability to dream creatively and make those dreams materialize is making Open Source Capital a model for many companies in the future. We realize that changing times often require changing the way in which we do business.

We seek to retain our entrepreneurial spirit while channeling people with a common cause and capital resources together in ways that will allow us to grow and create wealth for all stakeholders.  Moreover, we believe it is vital to the success of our business that our shareholders, officers, and associates all be considered partners.  There was a time when little was needed to succeed in the real estate business, but this is no longer the case.  In today’s world, we need to remain flexible and yet, at the same time, have the scale to gain access to the world’s ever-changing capital market.
