Our mantra remains the same: provide timely thought leadership by Industry Leaders with a focus on actionable investment insights and facilitated networking. Our by-invitation-only groups has selectively grown with continuous engagement among our 200+ members.
Members have taken the initiative in hosting Collabnet-sponsored Virtual Industry Briefings, Zoom Happy Hours and members have organized virtual Power Lunches.
Many members have further tapped-into the depth of our group membership by establishing direct relationships often kicked off by our facilitated introductions of members with a common business interest.

Experts offer fund facts that can keep NYC moving
By Rachel Antman
People often ask industry leaders: “What keeps you up at night?” The answer from those in real estate may very well be “infrastructure.”
Daniel Rose, chairman of Rose Associates, Inc., has decried the “pot-holed roadways, structurally unsound bridges and over-crowded air flights,” that are “facts of life throughout the United States today.”
And during a CollabNet event last month, RXR EVP Seth Pinsky stressed the dangers that crumbling infrastructure poses to New York City’s otherwise bright future.
It was not surprising, therefore, that CollabNet’s subsequent event, “The U.S. Infrastructure Marketplace,” attracted a capacity crowd of real estate executives (including Mr. Rose).
