#337: Blockchain, The New Future of Asset Classes, Hospitality Investments, and So Much More! -with Stephane De Baets

August 24, 2021


Stephane De Baets is a real estate, hospitality, and blockchain expert.

Stephane is a Belgian investment, real estate, and hospitality entrepreneur. He has 20 years of experience in asset management, financial structuring, and M&A. Currently, Stephane is the founder and president of the international asset management firm, Elevated Returns, which controls commercial properties transnationally.

As a pioneer in blockchain-based real estate, Stephane and his firm have facilitated the first major commercial real estate transaction using blockchain technology to sell ownership stakes in the Aspen St. Regis Resort.

 

Quote:

“…what we realized along the way, we realized that the world of commercial hospitality investing is really very incestuous. You have only a couple of players that really know each other and it’s a special investment club.”

“…we kind of looked and said: why isn’t there a democratic way for people to buy a piece of ownership of the asset that they love?”
