ABOUT ZAIN JAFFER


Zain Jaffer sits on the investment committee for all real estate acquisitions and venture capital investments in Bluefield Capital. Zain was previously a technology entrepreneur who founded his first start-up at the age of 14 and sold his last company to Blackstone in an all-cash acquisition for $780M. After his successful exit, he began investing in real estate through his family office at Zain Ventures where he focused on construction loans, single-family rentals, and multifamily apartments. He has been involved in all aspects of real estate acquisition, development, and financing at Blue Field. He is primarily focused on the venture capital fund, which he started in 2020. The VC fund invests in early-stage PropTech start-ups across the globe that are disrupting the sector. As part of his role with the venture capital fund, Zain sits on the Board of Directors for startups including Canopy Analytics and Basking Automation. Zain’s interest in PropTech led him to start PropTechVC. He is a contributor to real estate publications and has his own column on Entrepreneur.com, Forbes, and ValueWalk. Outside of his involvement with real estate and technology, he runs his own private foundation, the Zain Jaffer Foundation, which produces Asia-focused climate change documentaries and funds the development of water wells throughout Africa.
