CP Capital Launches ‘Project Destined’ Partnership

Okt 24, 2022

The leading investment manager will provide a diverse group of students with mentorship and hands-on training

October 24, 2022 – CP Capital, a highly disciplined U.S. real estate manager specializing in multifamily investments, today announced its new partnership with Project Destined, a social impact education and investment platform that specializes in training underserved youth.

Beginning in October, CP Capital will welcome fourteen students of diverse backgrounds to provide them with hands-on, one-on-one mentorship and the opportunity to work directly with a leading multifamily investment firm. Participating students attend Baruch College, Boston College, New York City College of Technology, Harvard University, Lehigh University, Georgia State University, Cornell University, Ohio State University and the University of South Carolina.

“CP Capital has built a successful track record delivering value to our investors and the communities where we invest, and we are proud to have the opportunity to do the same through our partnership with Project Destined,” said Logan King, Vice President at CP Capital. “We are committed to fostering diversity and inclusion within the industry and look forward to providing these impressive young professionals with the guidance, mentorship, and skill set needed to help them build a strong and successful future in real estate.”

Project Destined leverages a work-based learning approach where students join executives to evaluate actual commercial real estate deals in their community, and compete in a pitch competition to industry leaders to earn scholarships. CP Capital mentors will prepare, engage, and guide students one-on-one to help them develop a range of fundamentals—including financial, technical, presentation, and leadership skills—designed to aid them in obtaining internships, certifications, and full-time employment, launching their careers in commercial real estate.

“We are excited to partner with CP Capital to train this incredible group of students,” said Cedric Bobo, Co-Founder of Project Destined. “The real estate industry provides incredible opportunities to build a great career and impact your community. Our partnership with CP Capital will help ensure that these students are ready to take on that opportunity.”

Since its founding in 2016, Project Destined has worked with more than 4,500 participants in 35 cities across the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Europe. CP Capital joins a growing list of partners that includes Wells Fargo, JLL, Newmark, Greystar, Hines, Eastdil Secured, and Brookfield Properties – all of which support Project Destined and its mission to provide training in financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and real estate to students from underserved communities.
