Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing with Jonathan Greene

070: High-Quality Real Estate Investments at Scale with Veena Jetti


Whatever career you’re in–real estate investing or Corporate America–setting goals is the foundation of success. Goal-setting offers a definitive path to get where you want to go.

In this episode of Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing, Jonathan sits down with Veena Jetti, founder of Vive Funds. Vive Funds specializes in carefully curating high-quality real estate investments at scale. Veena has more than a decade of real estate experience and more than $1 billion in real estate assets throughout her career.

Jonathan uncovers why Veena Jetti wishes she’d jumped directly into multifamily properties rather than starting in residential real estate, why people don’t scale their investing fast enough, and the positive impact her investments allow her to make. They also discuss how Veena sources capital, her investment strategy, and when she says no to opportunities.

Veena’s generosity, humility, and desire to help others create their own success shine through in a conversation you won’t want to miss.
