On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Eric Stegemann, Managing Partner at TRIBUS Capital.

Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, TRIBUS Capital provides advisory services and investment in early-stage proptech companies. The fund looks to leverage the network effect of the TRIBUS portfolio which has relationships with nearly 100,000 realtors across the United States and Canada. Current TRIBUS capital portfolio companies include mortgage and real estate lead gen, chatbots, client data systems, MLS software vendors, and brokerage software companies. 

Eric brings over 20 years of brokerage and proptech experience and expertise to his role as Managing Partner of TRIBUS Capital. Having become a realtor before reaching the age of 20, Eric grew passionate about an industry where responsibility and hard work were rewarded. After selling for a large brand brokerage, he started his own brokerage which quickly grew to the largest independent in St. Louis within 20 months. Within six years, he received an offer to purchase the brokerage while retaining all of the technology developed. Using this technology, he started TRIBUS. Eric is regarded as one of the brightest minds in the real estate technology realm and has spoken at a variety of real estate events, such as Inman Connect in New York and San Francisco, the NAR Annual Conference, and numerous state and local board meetings.

Eric advises entrepreneurs and investors, discusses some of the challenges they face, and mentions some of the companies he has invested in.
