Funded by Designs mission is to educate the world about the revolution brought on by crowd funding and how to participate

Funded by Design was founded by Christopher Crippen. Chris has over 15 years of executive-level experience in Commercial / Residential Finance, Private Equity & Structured Finance. This rare combination of his passion for education and entrepreneurial attitude has given him a unique opportunity to successfully develop and implement innovative business ventures.


Chris started his career in finance at a large lender where he  rose to the top of the company and managed over 540 brokers. To embrace his passion for development and entrepreneurism he opened First Republic Residential Investments, a Correspondent Mortgage Lender originating over $50 million in residential and commercial mortgages annually.

RE Expo

Chris saw the signs of the pending crisis and closed his lender, then went to work for Fannie Mae as an REO Asset Manager, and then on to lead the FDIC Division at Prescient Asset Management.

In 2010, Chris decided to fulfill a life-long ambition to study abroad and moved to France, where he studied fine art photography. While in Paris, Chris could not help but notice the U.S. housing crisis unraveling and unveiling an immense opportunity. He returned to the U.S. & created US Residential Asset Fund to capitalize on opportunities in the market.
