Job Functions: Executive, Acquisitions & Dispositions, Asset Management, Development


Rodrigo Niño, CEO and founder of Prodigy Network, is revolutionizing both the commercial real estate and crowdfunding industries by being the first to meld the two worlds in the United States. A Colombian native and a Manhattan resident, Niño has proven Prodigy Network’s crowdfunding model as an efficient and secure mechanism that enables individuals from around the world to invest in specific projects that were solely accessible to the very wealthy before. Professor Karim Lakhani from Harvard Business School published a teaching case on Nino’s work titled, Prodigy Network: Democratizing Real Estate Design and Financing. Beyond commercial real estate, Niño believes the crowd can finance the solution of many of our current society’s problems. According to Niño, the share value paradigm ingrained in the crowdfunding formula can level up the playing field for everyone and change the way individuals relate to each other in the context of money. He sees "capitalism evolving into a Crowd-Economy, where profit and positive impact line up, ideas are rewarded over capital and a shift from self interest at the expense of others into as a function of positive impact on others. Niño has spoken at worldwide conferences and has been a noteworthy guest at NYU, MIT, Yale, Harvard University and the AEDES gallery in Berlin. Niño is often featured in leading publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Businessweek, Forbes, The Economist, The New York Times and Fast Company amongst others.
