Cofundie as a product is a tool that caters to two personalities – property developers and investors. As a service, it is poised to help you sponsor the construction of affordable housing in return for a share of the profit after these homes are sold or rented out. This means locating the best properties to invest in.
Every month, we will be talking to one property developer, asking them questions about their work and how Cofundie is helping them shape the direction of business and life.

He is a postgraduate student of Surveying and Geoinformatics at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State. He is passionate about modular homes and humanity.
