The Joint Venture Will Combine Leading U.S. And European Curated Content Platforms Into A Single Interface For Real Estate Professionals

New York, NY (July 14, 2020) — Two of the world's largest curated real estate news and research platforms today announced a joint venture to create a single portal for real estate professionals globally.

The News Funnel (, the largest curated content platform in the U.S. commercial real estate industry, has joined forces with Infabode (, the leading European based content platform, to provide a single destination for all news, press releases, research and related content covering the real estate sector globally.

Under this agreement, the two platforms and subscribers will merge under the Infabode brand, providing users with a single portal to access highly-curated, personalized news and research information in real time.

The new Infabode/News Funnel venture will be jointly led by Michael Beckerman, CEO of The News Funnel, who also heads the company’s other brands CREtech, FUTURE PropTech and ATYPICAL, and Infabode CEO, Matt Partridge, who will manage all day-to-day operations of the newly combined platform. 

Founded in 2012, The News Funnel curates news in real time from thousands of real estate, local news, business and company sources. Over 100,000 subscribers are able to select market segments, areas of interest, companies and topics that are of most relevance to them, with the site delivering news to each user 24/7. The News Funnel is part of one of the largest media, research and conference companies devoted to real estate technology.

Infabode, which launched in 2015, is an aggregator and distributor of market-leading global real estate news and research, which is tailored to the needs of each user, be that industry professionals or organisations. For the users, it saves time and effort in identifying and gaining access to their required research. For the content providers, including major investment managers, banks and agents, Infabode is a means of efficiently increasing the distribution of their content and brand. The platform is free to join and is used by professionals around the world.

“This joint venture agreement with Infabode is a dream come true for our subscribers as they will now have access to the largest content library of both third-party media and original content from companies around the world,” says Michael Beckerman, CEO of The News Funnel. “I have long been an admirer of Infabode and its founder/CEO Matt Partridge and I am thrilled to be joining forces with him and his team.” 

Matt Partridge, CEO of Infabode, is equally enthusiastic about this joint venture. “This deal has been several years in the making as we have looked to find a way to expand these two closely aligned businesses. I have huge respect for Michael Beckerman and his team individually but also collectively in what they have been able to achieve to date.” Infabode’s CEO also highlights that “This partnership dramatically increases the number of users accessing content on Infabode, especially in the US, which is fantastic news for the 900 plus content partners that use our platform.”
