Realty+ 40 Under 40 inaugural edition this year listed the top real estate professionals for the year 2021 that are paving the path for change and innovation in the sector.

Sudarshan is a first generation entrepreneur who aimed to democratize commercial real estate as an investment class for the masses which was earlier reserved only for HNIs and UHNIs. He eyed the big opportunity at the intersection of commercial real estate and finance and launched Strata, which has pioneered to build fractional investment in CRE as an established asset class.

In less than a year since its inception, Strata raised $1.5 million funding in a seed round led by SAIF Partners and Mayfield India. Strata is thus creating India’s largest tech enabled real-estate investment platform and has been attracting massive interest from both institutional and retail investors.

Sudarshan briefed, “For decades CRE has been the only asset class to offer double-digit returns Y-o-Y and offer consistent returns. However owing to the huge ticket size, lack of expertise, lack of data and transparency among others, it has always remained restricted to HNIs, Private Equity firms and family offices.”

Sudarshan’s vision is to democratise premium commercial real estate in India like never before by reducing high capital requirement by fractionalizing investment and reducing the ticket size of the retail investor, offering the most potential and risk free asset through stringent property screening and rigorous due diligence and improving liquidity through easily transferable shares.

At Strata, we aim to build CRE into an asset class accessible to a larger investor audience base while also negating its disadvantages. By fractionalizing CRE and offering it on an easy to-use online platform, we aim to offer assets such as warehousing, logistics and data centres which could never be considered as an investment opportunity despite offering excellent returns available to retail investors.
