    Amit Kapur

    Amit helped co-found Hosty in 2018. As a Real Estate Fund Executive, Amit quickly realized the premium that transient style bookings added to the normal rate of return achieved through traditional forms of rent. Utilizing his skillset in financial forecasting, deep understanding of geographic regions of real estate, property layout, and hurdle rate expectations, he realized that there was an untapped amount of wealth capturing opportunity left on the table for traditional investors.

    Amit uses his vision to structure financial systems that enable the company to optimize short-term success and long-term strategy.
