The Board of Governors would like to thank you for supporting Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute programs through your 2016 Inspired Leader alumni membership.
Join other Inspired Leaders for a relaxed autumn evening on Blackbird Investments' private rooftop patio. Host, T.J. Jacobs, a partner at Blackbird Investments and a 2007 CLP alumnus, will highlight some of their projects (including the former Younkers properties) as we enjoy fall-themed appetizers and overlook the stunning Des Moines skyline.

About Blackbird Investments:
Believing that there is no single solution for all projects, Blackbird Investments looks for the creative solutions to problems which range from financial to physical.
- Forming strategic alliances with both local and national investors
- Creating energy efficient buildings
- Developing low-impact storm water abatement and landscapes
- Engaging local craftsmen to create new solutions
- Partnering with local housing advocates on multi-family projects
At its core, the development of good real estate is about the development of good relationships with others. Blackbird Investments believes that transforming buildings can change not only the structure but also the surrounding community. We believe in giving buildings new life, not just holding on to their previous one. A unique blend of old and new, what existed before persists in the structure and helps give rise to the purpose that emerges to carry it into the future.
