One of Fayetteville’s fastest-growing companies is hosting a live podcast on May 18 at the Fayetteville Public Library.
Fayetteville land brokerage AcreTrader, the online farmland investing platform that’s raised more than $75 million in outside capital since 2018, is hosting the event. Joe Saul-Sehy, host of “The Stacking Benjamins Show” podcast will interview AcreTrader CEO Carter Malloy to discuss the company’s rapid growth in front of a live audience that will have an opportunity to ask questions after the interview.
“Stacking Benjamins” is a personal finance podcast that helps its listeners reach financial security. Saul-Sehy began the podcast after a 16-year career as a financial advisor and is currently touring the country promoting his new book “Stacked” and recording podcast episodes.
AcreTrader utilizes proprietary technology to facilitate buying and selling land, one of the largest U.S. real estate sectors, exceeding $3 trillion in value.
The company’s revenues have grown fivefold over the past year, its customer base has tripled, and the amount of land going live on its platform has more than doubled.
Malloy, an Arkansas native and University of Arkansas graduate with a degree in physics, is the founder.
“The few investment options that are available charge high fees, provide almost no liquidity and offer no choice over portfolio composition,” Malloy told the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal in a March 2019 interview. “In short, there hasn’t been an easy, affordable way for most investors to participate. Until now.”
AcreTrader has nearly 80 employees, up from approximately 15 in January 2021. The company recently expanded its $40 million Series B funding round to $60 million following an investment from Columbus, Ohio-based venture capital firm Drive Capital.
The podcast recording begins at 5:30 p.m. on May 18 and is free, though registration is required. Click this link for registration and more information.
