Structuring Frontier and Emerging Market Transactions
Homestrings was founded more than ten years ago as a web-based crowdfunding platform that provides the 240 million Diaspora with exclusive access to vetted opportunities in Frontier and Emerging markets. With over 5,000 members and a four-year track record, Homestrings has funded over $25 million for 35 transactions in 12 countries with minimum capital.
