About Hedgehog

Hedgehog is making it possible for anyone to invest in world class assets, starting with New York real estate.

For $10k, users will access benefits such as earning regular income from rents paid by creditworthy tenants, protection of their money from the risk of rising inflation and the opportunity to make a positive social and environmental impact.

Our vision is one in which a user of our Hedgehog app has the ability to pick and choose what they want to own from a wide range of asset classes across international cities, to build a portfolio in line with their own personal preferences and values. If they need to get their money back? They can get out at any time.

The Hedgehog team combines investment expertise in both public and private markets, entrepreneurial experience and a multi-decade track record in successful real estate development.

We have secured access to a portfolio of real estate and renewable energy assets developed in the New York metro area over the last 30 years: 3 million square feet of commercial property + 1,200 waterfront residential units; 25 different assets, more than USD 1.5bn in total value; all within 1 hour of Manhattan.

How we plan to scale

As a company we have a big vision and big plans. We want to build a special company, to create value where real and virtual worlds converge, and to make an enduring impact on society and the environment.

We are fortunate to have a founding team of experienced professionals, with access to funding through the seed stage and a pipeline of existing, diversified, high-quality New York assets to supply our platform.

The future we see

We believe the convergence of digital technology and real assets will unlock access for individuals to previously out-of-reach investment opportunities. By building our platform on the blockchain and making investments available using tokenization, Hedgehog makes fractional ownership of real assets possible in a way that is truly scalable and efficient.

The Hedgehog digital investment experience is complete with a level of social and enjoyment value made possible by blockchain technology with users able to browse and buy various utility tokens in the community as well as digital tokens that represent investment securities.

As Hedgehog serves a growing community of users that are connected to each other, more opportunities are available to invest and earn in more cities and in more asset classes, leading to an increasingly valuable network.
