Craig Cecilio

Founder and CEO DiversyFund, Inc.


Craig Cecilio is the CEO and Founder of DiversyFund. Craig’s mission is to disrupt traditional alternative asset investing and empower the average investor by giving them the same wealth building opportunities available to the 1%. Craig’s visionary approach to democratizing alternative asset investing combines the power of crowdfunding with cutting-edge technology through DiversyFund’s online platform.

Prior to founding DiversyFund in 2014, Craig worked for nearly 20 years as a joint venture equity partner, lender and developer. A natural entrepreneur, Craig has utilized his networking skills to lead the development of over 1,000 single family residences, financing more than $1 billion worth of real estate assets.

Through these deals, however, Craig realized the traditional ways of raising money were archaic and excluded the retail investor. As he watched the rich get richer, he wondered how he could incorporate the average investor into these incredible investments.

A natural competitor, Craig saw an opportunity to open up these incredible investment deals to the “99 percent” by utilizing technology and crowdfunding. With a focus on technology, Craig has broken down the barriers to invest in real estate, giving all investors an opportunity to participate in real estate investments that would otherwise only be available to the privileged and well-connected.

Craig is a graduate of the University of Colorado Boulder, earning a bachelor's degree in 1996. He received his California real estate license in 1998. Before DiversyFund, he sat on the board of ARTs (A Reason to Survive) which promotes art as a means of therapy for children.

Craig Cecilio is a frequent speaker on topics surrounding crowdfunding, entrepreneurship, real estate syndication, real estate development, and leadership.
