LendInvest has released new dates for a training course aimed at aspiring property developers to be held early next year.
The course will be held by the LendInvest Property Development Academy, a non-profit initiative designed to improve the skills of aspiring property developers whose projects can help to solve Britain’s major housing crisis.
The decision was made to hold the event, to take place in central London on 20 and 21 January, after interest in the first course, to take place during the second week of November, was oversubscribed with 200 applicants for the 25 slots available.
Christian Faes, co-founder and CEO of LendInvest, said: “We have been astounded by the interest in the LendInvest Property Development Academy since we launched it last month. Our decision to add new London dates to accommodate more people is testament to the quality of the people who applied, a huge number of whom were able to demonstrate a genuine and serious intention to enter property development.
“Interest from developers, advisers and industry bodies alike in the LendInvest Property Development Academy has highlighted the desperate need for better development education. Our attendees are the lucky ones. They will benefit from the expertise of some fantastic coaches with crucial hands-on experience, as well as build a network of invaluable contacts from their local area.
“As momentum in the new government grows to encourage more SME housebuilding, we hope to be front and centre of the drive to give more developers the tools and confidence they need to deliver more homes onto UK streets.”
LendInvest Property Development Academy, which will announce further course dates in London and other UK cities in early 2017, says that a full list of speakers and partners will be announced in due course.
