Perry Zheng is the founder and CEO of Cash Flow Portal, real estate syndication software, and a real investor portal founded in April 2020. 

Before starting to work on Cash Flow Portal full-time, Perry was an engineering manager at Lyft for 5 years and worked as a software engineer at Twitter and Amazon before that. He started real estate syndication over three years ago and now has more than 2000 units, raised over $20M for real estate projects and is a lead sponsor on two deals totalling 850+ apartment units.

His goal is to help other syndicators groups succeed and overcome common challenges like raising capital and finding deals even while having full-time jobs. By July 2021, he helped four syndication groups raise $30MM+ of capital by having investors sign docs automatically on the platform.
