At the first-ever TREC Shark Tank: GrowSouth event, all three teams presenting innovative investment and economic development ideas for southern Dallas were promised funding. Civitas Capital Group‘s Tillie Borchers, who manages the GrowSouth Fund for the firm, was the only shark to award all three teams funding.

Modeled after the hit television show, The Real Estate Council‘s Shark Tank featured three teams pitching projects to develop parcels located within the City of Dallas’s GrowSouth footprint before a panel of real estate investors and a live audience.

“This event was a great way to highlight the growth opportunity in southern Dallas,” Borchers said. “Our participation in the event exemplifies Civitas’ commitment to southern Dallas, urban development, and creative solutions for funding real estate projects that meet community needs.”
