Show Notes

Eve Picker is the founder of Small Change, a real estate equity crowdfunding platform. Small Change raises funds for meaningful real estate projects building better cities everywhere. Like Kickstarter for real estate—but with a return. Small Change matches developers to investors, providing investment opportunities for everyone who cares about cities and wants to make change.

Eve’s world has always been wrapped around cities and change. Her background as an architect, city planner, urban designer, real estate developer, community development strategist, publisher, and instigator gives her a rich understanding of how cities work, how urban neighborhoods can be revitalized, what policies are needed to do it, and the unique marketing that creates the buzz needed for regeneration.

Amongst Eve’s many urban (ad)ventures, she’s developed a dozen buildings in blighted neighborhoods, founded a non-profit, cityLAB, built Pittsburgh’s first tiny house, organized a speaker series, launched a Pittsburgh e-zine called PopCity, and established downtown Pittsburgh’s first co-working space. She also co-founded Pittsburgh’s wildly successful Open Streets program and now host a weekly podcast series about real estate impact investing.
