BOSTON–Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker joined The Fallon Company Chairman Joseph Fallon, CEO Michael Fallon and Directors Lydia Deneen and Danny Guadagnoli, as well as Street2Ivy founder Tavares Brewington and Wentworth Institute of Technology Vice President for Institutional Advancement Crate Herbert, in congratulating the graduating class of the 2022 Fallon Real Estate Entrepreneurship Youth Program at Wentworth.
The six-week program, now in its second year, is a collaboration between The Fallon Company, a leading national real estate development firm headquartered in Boston, and Street2Ivy, an entrepreneurial incubator focused on giving aspiring change-makers in underserved communities the tools and resources they need to solve problems in their communities and beyond.
The free program equips young people ages 16-21 with the skills, knowledge, and mentors needed to participate in real estate investing, including how to identify and evaluate potential investment opportunities, conduct property valuation and market analysis, raise capital, and submit and negotiate a winning offer.
During the celebration, the teams of students presented their capstone projects to The Fallon Company and Street2Ivy leadership. The presentations were preceded by a reception and remarks from Governor Baker, Joseph Fallon, and Brewington. All received certificates of completion upon program graduation.
