"One of the top 10 OZ funds in the country" (Forbes)

We are both a Qualified Opportunity Zone & Venture Capital Fund


The Pearl Fund is an early-stage venture capital fund designed to generate significant returns that will be completely tax-free to investors via the Opportunity Zone tax laws. 

There are significant tax benefits for investors who put their capital gains into Qualified Opportunity Zone Funds within their 180-day window.

Laser Focused on High Potential Startups


We are not a real-estate OZ fund.  

We focus our investments in high potential early-stage startups that have the potential to yield a 10X+ return (real estate returns 2X on average) 

This, in turn, is expected to create a much greater economic impact for the communities while delivering significantly higher returns for investors than real estate-specific OZ funds.
