The Self Storage

Developer's Academy

August 22nd-24th, 2019 in Indianapolis, Indiana

Get A Look Inside The Academy

Get ready for three full days of content and networking, where you'll learn what's working NOW in self storage development, and how you can take advantage of the incredible demand for self-storage facilities in virtually every market.

There's a Fundamental Shift Taking Place in
Self Storage Development

The recent recession forced a number of businesses and individuals to downsize or pursue shared accommodations.
This created a nationwide spike in demand in storage for all that excess inventory and personal items that businesses and individuals couldn’t part with.

At the same time, virtually ALL new development projects were halted as the Federal Reserve viewed any new development projects brought by the banks as “risky and speculative.” The problem is massive, and both new investors and established industry brands are understandably concerned.

But is there a solution?

There is, and we believe we’ve found it.
To win in 2018, you must build a team of capital sources and industry leading experts to move swiftly and with confidence.

The Self Storage Developer's Academy!

The Self Storage Developer’s Academy is unique because it brings self storage developers, industry leading suppliers, and eager capital sources all together in the same room to network, share ideas and discover new opportunities.

And why are we doing this?

Because investors and developers need a road map and a team… and the leading providers of self storage building supplies and services need educated, capitalized entrepreneurs to take advantage of the hole in the marketplace.
And that’s why this event was born.

We wanted to find out what would happen when the best developers, suppliers, and capital sources get together to:

  1. Discuss (and debate) the latest and most innovative business models across the self storage landscape
  2. Share groundbreaking trends and technologies, and…
  3. Collaborate and forge truly innovative partnerships and joint ventures

That’s why The Self Storage Developer’s Academy was created, and now you’re invited to be a part of it.

If the following describes you, you NEED to be here:

 You’re a real estate investor looking for ways to monetize your efforts beyond traditional investing

 You’re an industry supplier looking for new sources and channels to market your products and services

 You’re an investor looking for ways to put your capital to use in a more passive way in this explosive sector

 You’re an entrepreneur who wants the inside track on this explosive industry that is being talked about in the elite investment circles

We’ll have expert keynotes and case study sessions designed around the specific ACTION STEPS to launch or participate in a self storage project, access to our approved vendors, a site tour of multiple development projects, networking events, and much, much more.

At this event, we’re going to be “opening the kimono” and sharing exactly what’s working (and what isn’t working) in our businesses. We’ve also asked some friends and colleagues who we know are doing some innovative and exciting things to share their best strategies and tactics, too.

Some of the names you’ll recognize, but many will be new. All of them, however, will be bringing their best, and what they have to share with you just may change the direction of your company forever.
