Our Mission

Our mission at Fundamental is to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills to successfully navigate the complexities of capital raising. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive education and resources, enabling capital raisers to confidently attract investors for their real estate ventures.

Through our expert guidance, we aim to foster a community of informed and ambitious real estate professionals, driving innovation and growth in the industry.

What Sets Us Apart


What type of capital raising templates are there?

We will provide you with underwriting models and spreadsheets, company overview presentations, investor deal launch emails, investor tracking sheets, soft-commitment forms, investor newsletter templates, and more.

Are there any guarantees or money back policies?

Fundamental tier receives a 30-day money-back guarantee. Presidential and Founder’s Club members receive a 14-day money-back guarantee, as most of the fees are used to pay third parties for services (e.g., attorney fees for the flex fund, back-office service fees, etc.).

Once you engage the SEC attorney to begin working on your Flex Fund, there is no refund because the fees will have to be paid to the SEC Attorney.

Is there a customizable spreadsheet that can help me model returns that I can show my investors?

Yes, you will receive access to a proprietary fund-of-fund analytic which will help you identify the flex fund returns, manager compensation, and investor returns.

What are “white glove marketing services”?

For Founder’s Club members, our marketing team will act on your behalf to create your website, your logo, company overview deck, and recruit to get you podcast appearances. 

Who is the 1-on-1 coaching with and is it truly unlimited?

The Fundamental coaches are experienced, proven capital raisers who have participated in several deals as both fund managers and general partners.

They have partnered with Rise48 Equity on several deals and have each raised several millions of dollars from investors. Zach and Bikran do not participate in personal 1:1 coaching calls but lead the group Mastermind calls.

Each Presidential and Founder’s Club client has unlimited access to 1:1 coaching calls.
