Cinnaire collaborated with the Women’s Sustainable Development Initiative (WSDI), to address barriers to success for women in the commercial real estate development industry. With the launch of the Women Empowered to Build (WE Build) program in Detroit, the WSDI initiative is a year-long free training and mentoring program aimed at fostering diversity and inclusivity in the field of real estate development in Michigan. Cinnaire and WSDI joined forces to accelerate the fundability, stability and growth of women-led businesses and women-led nonprofits in real estate development. The WE Build program features monthly in-person sessions complemented by virtual discussions and supplemental learning. WSDI developed the curriculum to be inclusive of the full pre-development process and establish lender relationships. Training topics include understanding real estate trends, financial modeling, assessing the suitability of a property for development and project funding.
