RodrigoBuilding a Data Community for Public Finance
If you work in public finance, you’re among the most mission-driven individuals in the financial sector. You’re also possibly one of the least celebrated. Your neighbors probably don’t realize that you help finance critical local projects like the schools, water systems, and parks they take for granted.
It’s even less likely they’re aware of the challenges you and your colleagues face in putting together such projects. At Neighborly, solving those challenges is core to our mission of enabling anyone to invest in anywhere. That’s why today we launched a set of tools called Neighborly Pro to empower professionals like you to raise capital for public projects more quickly and more efficiently.
