IncentiFind lets real estate developers and property owners to find relevant green incentives for their projects. The platform helps developers, property owners, and tenants find incentives offers by Federal, State, and City governments for their real-estate and home improvement projects.

The U.S. government agencies at different levels offer $20 billion in green incentives every year. The incentives are usually paid out through tax credits, rebates, tax deductions, grants, subsidy programs.

You might think IncentiFind’s reason of existence as a huge gap between buildings going green and unclaimed incentives. An image by IncentiFind neatly sums it up below.

Real Estate Market in the Inland Empire

At Startempire Wire, we covered how the industrial leasing market is among the hottest in the country. According to the CBRE report we wrote about, 21 of the 100 industrial leases in the USA were bagged by the Inland Empire region.ย The market IncentiFind serves will only get stronger as the demand for converting existing buildings into energy efficiency will grow, hence the need to apply for incentives offered by the government.

We also covered other real estate startups like Sundae, a platform operating in the Inland Empire lets owners of older homes sell their properties rather conveniently. Being a strong real estate market also means that groups like Duke Realty and others have an unmet demand of connecting their buildings to the applicable incentives. With a rising demand for commercial and industrial real estate, real estate tech startups are expected to reap handsome rewards.

Here’s a talk by IncentiFind founder, Natalie Campos Goodman, where she walks us through biggest green energy trends in the U.S.
