After our resoundingly successful event last June, we are hosting another enlightening Digital Evolution Institute event at the Colburn School on Thursday, March 7th. This event focuses on real estate and sustainability and will feature speakers across the industry including Bill Shopoff, Joe Williams, and representation from major builders like FivePoint as well as the top real estate investment firms. Continuing with our focus on cutting-edge innovation, we are excited to announce that we will have a fireside chat with the captain of moonshots, Astro Teller, CEO of X. 

Family offices, allocators, investors, and professionals are invited to attend this event. We already have representation confirmed from Family Offices and allocators in the United States, Asia, and the Middle East. 

This is an invite-only event and I am pleased to offer the Wharton community a discounted rate of $100. Please register on the BIA website as a Colburn Guest attendee. This discounted rate will be available until February 28th and is available on a first come first serve basis.
