The AIA created this website to help architects and clients connect with investors able to move stalled projects forward. By clicking inside the 'Get Started Now' box to your right, business leaders can fill out a form and tell investors about their projects. By clicking in that same box, investors can tell project leaders about their firms and the types of investments they make. Once registered, you can see details on stalled projects or peruse investor information. There's an opportunity for both groups to make contact. Get started now!
