About the 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 to invest in storage unit.

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:

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

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

The recent recession constrained various organizations and people to scale back or pursue shared lodging.This made an across the nation spike popular in storage for all that excess inventory and personal items that organizations and people couldn’t part with.

Simultaneously, 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 issue is enormous, and both new investors and established industry brands are understandably concerned.

However, is there an answer? There is, and we believe we’ve found it.

To win in the current times, you must build a team of capital sources and industry leading experts to move swiftly and with confidence.


You Should Attend the Self-Storage Developers Academy if…

If this describes you… you need to be here.

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.

What to Expect

At this event, we’re going to be “opening our house for a grand tour” 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 to invest in self storage.

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.

We launched The Self Storage Developer’s Academy, because we are self-storage developers and syndicators ourselves and we want to meet and learn from other top developers, industry suppliers, and capital providers.
