#59 Dan Miller, Founder and CEO of Steward online platform for investing in sustainable farms
Dan Miller is the Founder and CEO of Steward, an online platform for investing in sustainable farms. Unlike traditional funding methods, Steward’s crowdfarmingä model creates a healthy yield for both farmers and investors: farms are able to purchase land and equipment, and investors earn projected returns while making a positive impact. From 2010 to 2015, Miller was Co-Founder, President and Director of Fundrise, the first and largest US real estate crowdfunding platform, which has raised more than $1 billion to date. He remains involved with Western Development Corporation, his family’s real estate organization, which has developed more than 20 million square feet in its 50-year history. He graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania with a B.S. in 2009, and an M.B.A in 2010.
