About Jonathan Wasserstrum

Howdy, I’m Jonathan Wasserstrum. My day job is building SquareFoot which we started in 2011...before “PropTech” was a word. I started my career in commercial real estate in 2007 doing international capital markets work at JLL. Boom times, right?! But I learned a ton and saw how folks operate during a recession.

Fast forward and PropTech is a word that is causing the world and the industry to accelerate quickly to adopt and adapt.

I often receive an early call when someone is thinking about doing an early stage PropTech deal and a lot of the deals I’ve done have started with someone saying to the founder “oh you’ve got to talk to Jonathan.” On multiple occasions founders have squeezed down VC pro-ratas to make room for me.

“Jonathan has been an incredible angel investor and brings a lot of what you want from a founder investing in your company: empathy, great advice in the trenches, genuine care for the company vs impressing LPs, fundraising intros to amazing people, and general support. I hope to have him invest in everything I ever build.” - Ray Sturm, CEO AlphaFlow

I believe in diversification in general and in angel investing in particular. With this fund, we aim to invest in ~20 companies per quarter. These will be mostly early-stage companies, however, we will also consider some later stage investments.

We have a bunch of PropTech founders and real estate executives in the fund which makes us a super valuable investor for any company to have on their journey with them
