 Meet Our Panel:

Andrew Ackerman, Managing Director of DreamIt - Andrew runs Dreamit's UrbanTech Accelerator, seeing over 2000 startups each year and selecting fewer than 15 to work with and ultimately invest in.  He works closely with our 80+ corporate partners to help them find and work effectively with startups as well as to develop and execute on their strategies for encouraging internal innovation.

Andrew writes frequently on startup related topics, venture investing, and corporate innovation in articles published in Fortune, Forbes, AlleyWatch, Propmodo, CREtech, BUILDER Online, Multifamily Executive, Architect Magazine, Edsurge, The 74 Million, etc. and frequently present about these topics at conferences.

Kyle Koller, Research Director, JLL - Kyle Koller leads the research department in Central Florida for JLL, with additional insight across the State. He is responsible for over 167 million square feet of Class A and B office space in addition to 735 million square feet of industrial space. Accompanying the delivery of quarterly reports for the two markets, Kyle supports both the tenant representation and agency brokers by performing market analyses for individual submarkets, statistical analyses and financial analyses for lease structures and building valuations.

Mr. Koller joined JLL in 2015 as a Research Analyst focused on the Milwaukee commercial office and industrial markets. In that role, Mr. Koller performed local and national market analysis for the local brokerage teams.

Mr. Koller was promoted to Senior Research Analyst in March of 2017, and joined the Tampa Bay team in January of 2018. In his current role, his responsibilities extend into financial analysis, data visualization, and business development.

Camille Renshaw, CEO and co-founder of B+E - B+E is the first tech-driven brokerage and trading platform for net lease real estate.  Launched in December 2017, they now have offices in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Denver and Tampa, and their trading platform consists of user-friendly dashboards, real-time predictive pricing and an AI-driven exchange -- all leveraging the largest data set in the industry. Buyers and sellers can conduct entire transactions online, reviewing real-time credit, news and tenant data while they trade, much like online stock trading platforms. 

In May 2018, B+E announced an exclusive partnership with Inland Real Estate and RCX Capital Group.  Leveraging AI, B+E brokers can now sweep the national net lease market, reviewing all on-market properties, and criteria match on a 1031 exchanger’s behalf; the exchanger can then run their entire exchange through the B+E platform using specialized dashboards that makes the process simpler and more transparent. 

In December 2018, B+E launched the first 1031 online trading platform at the ICSC New York Deal Making Show.  The B+E 1031 Trade platform empowers exchangers to review the market for all net lease properties, both on-market and off-market.  The proprietary system then utilizes user defined criteria to match properties and name and purchase replacement properties.

In May 2019, B+E brokered the largest commercial real estate transaction by a digital platform with the $324 million Cabela’s sale-leaseback.  The eleven Cabela’s properties represented more than 1.6 million square feet of space and an additional 277 acres of land.
