On October 20, 2022, The Graaskamp Center for Real Estate, in collaboration with the Wisconsin Real Estate Club, presented Ryan Williams with Graaskamp Center Innovator Award. Each year, the Innovator Award is awarded to an individual that embodies the spirit of the Wisconsin Real Estate Center in its innovation in teaching and research, as well as in the accomplishments of its alumni and practitioners.
Ryan Williams is the Founder, Executive Chairman & Co-Chairman of Cadre. He left Blackstone at age 26 to found Cadre. Williams said, “Cadre’s mission is to create a more efficient economy, where we can connect the world’s buyers and sellers in opaque assets that have been inaccessible to many.” To make real estate investments even more attainable, Cadre just announced a fund, which will allow non-accredited investors to engage with and invest on the Cadre platform.
