The Wisconsin Real Estate Program and Wisconsin Real Estate Alumni Association (WREAA) raised $3 million to launch WREAA Fund I, L.P. and the Real Estate Private Equity (REPE) Track in the Fall of 2020. Graaskamp Center Director, Mark Eppli, and Irgens Executive Director, Michael Brennan, co-instruct 15 MBA and MS real estate graduate students in the REPE Track.
Across the past three semesters students have:
- Contacted 300+ individuals for investment opportunities.
- Sourced 71 investment opportunities.
- Presented nine (9) opportunities to the investment committee with eight (8) receiving investment approval for $1,973,000.
The spring semester is all about deal flow and this is where we need your help! WREAA Fund I has $780,000 of capital to invest by May. The fund seeks to invest $150,000 to $450,000 in L.P. positions in individual properties with a 2–5-year hold period.
Deals can be submitted to our group email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will sign NDAs, and our students understand the importance of confidentiality.
