Founder and CEO of MELT Property
a group of property development and investment companies
Welcome to my home on the internet. My name is Evan Maindonald and I am a Entrepreneur, early stage techonology investor and advisor (Lucidity, CrowdWithUs, Spinview and others). I am also the author of Deconstructing Development, a book which explains how to deliver property development projects in a profitable and cost-efficient manner.
I have been programming computers since I was 12 years old. After completing a BSc in Computer Science, I worked in the IT industry in New Zealand before moving to the UK in the early 90’s. After working for BT for a decade and ending up running a business unit with revenues of over £1bn, I completed an MBA at IMD in Lausanne. I then worked for a technology startup before starting MELT Property.
I have over 25 years of experience in Property Development and investment and I frequently write on property issues and finance topics for the national and trade press. I speak at national and international property sector events, and regularly appear on Property TV.
My main focus is now on early stage investments in technology companies. Specific areas of interest include Proptech, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual/Augmented Reality, Blockchain and Sustainability. If you have a start-up in one of these areas and are require help or are looking to raise investment, feel free to reach out to me.
As well as investing my own funds, I also assist tech startups with capital raising, marketing, scaling and dealing with other early stage challenges in growing early stage technology companies.
Crowd with Us believe that the benefits of property investment and development should be shared more widely and equitably. They wanted to create a platform with the most advanced technology available, to make the investment process transparent and simple to engage with.Above all, they aim to give investors an excellent return on theirinvestment, whether a small or large stakeholder.
