Tales from the Entrepreneurial Frontline
Episode I: Rob and Dan Hit Tbilisi
Whilst some investors are happy to sit on their portfolios, we’ve always preferred to be a little more perfunctory about where we venture with our investments.
A great demonstration of this is our recent spot of property poker with the big boys in Tbilisi, Georgia. The stakes at this table aren’t the biggest at the moment, but the blood in the water is attracting some of the larger sharks.
With reports from UNWTO stating that there has been a 21% rise in international tourists over the last four years, this is becoming one of the hottest destinations in Europe. Over five million people visited here last year, with the country establishing itself as a gateway destination to places like Turkey, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan.
During the trip we cemented our interest in three mixed use property development sites, including one which is in an area hotly tipped to become the next artistic/bohemian centre of the city; an area with stunning city wide views from an open elevated location
Whilst there we presided over the opening of our new office and agreed deals for legal and commercial representation in the area.
