What We Do
Patch of Land originates, underwrites and services loans, offering these back to accredited investors through Crowdfunding exemptions of the JOBS Act and SEC regulations: Title II, Reg D 506(c).
Patch of Land currently serves accredited, institutional and international investors.
Jason Fritton, a successful e-commerce entrepreneur, wanted to help repair communities across the country that were devastated by the real estate crash and implement changes to keep it from happening again. He was an early lobbyist for exemptions that would encourage and democratize capital formation for new business to be written into the JOBS Act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act). The law passed in 2012, including the crowdfunding exemptions he’d worked for.
He joined forces with his brother Brian Fritton, an award-winning enterprise-level software engineer and system architect with the same passion for encouraging growth through economic development – and state of the art technology, to put the opportunities the JOBS Act enabled into affect.
The Founders united their ideas, experience and resources to form Patch of Land, where transparency, low minimums, project-by-project investment and ease of transaction would set the stage for real change and real profit.
