Plum Investors acquires Big Data Foreclosure tool

Development Capital Group (DLPM) and Plum Investors raised $680,900 to build online tools that harnessed new innovative technologies like Big Data. The new application that we developed is amazing.

Realty Valuator pulls in all the government auctions that are happening every day in Florida, and pulling information from over 20 different data points to allow an investor to see a better snapshot when buying a house.

These auctions happen rather fast, and having the right tools, insight, and information is the key difference in success and failure.

We plan to relaunch in the second quarter of 2015 with the right capital and marketing plan. We are happy to announce that we have our agreement for full ownership from Development Capital Group for all the website, intellectual property, and domain name.

Investing in your roots –

FSU Alumni - InvestorPlum Investors is working on close ties with the Florida State Alumni to invest in the future of FSU and its students. One of the larger issues we found while going to college was a marketplace that allowed students to exchange services, assets, or buy and sell assets, safely. With all the crime reported on site like Craigslist, and Ebay being home of a large economy, we found a need for a small community focused around the Florida State Community.

We always believe that investing in people is the most rewarding we can do. One of our current investments is in an alumnus Simon Anderson, who is currently publishing a book on the future of technology and is known in the industry as a Futurist. The current project that we are investing in is a campus exclusive market place for Florida State University called “Nole Trader” you can find out more about it on its BETA currently at

The company is working on a lot of marketing ideas and teaming up with people at Florida State through strategic partnerships to create awareness of the service for students. We plan on launching the website through a soft launch, then do a large marketing campaign on campus.
