MIAMI Wynwood 9, was the very first ever campaign hosted on a European crowdfunding platform, which raised capital to build a real estate project outside Europe. In addition to this already considerable record, it was also the biggest crowdfunding real estate campaign ever made in Italy
As we will describe further on, the project involved the redevelopment of an entire area, a very important one, Wynwod, and the company that is implementing the initiative is an all-Italian company that for years has been one of the reference player for the international market.
We therefore believe that MIAMI Wynwood 9 represents the best of Italianness in the world.
