184: Chris Rawley: Democratizing Agricultural Investments Through CrowdFunding

Chris Rawley


In 2016 Chris Rawley, while visiting a farm investment in Central America, conceived the idea of building a crowdfunding platform to streamline agriculture investment. He soon founded Harvest Returns to bring that vision to reality. Rawley has held corporate management roles in Jones Lang LaSalle, Electronic Data Systems, L-3 Communications, and served as a defense consultant at Special Operations Command headquarters with Blackbird Technologies.  He has invested in real estate and income-producing agriculture for nearly two decades.  As a Captain in the United States Navy Reserve, Rawley is the Commanding Officer of a unit focused on building maritime security partnerships in the piracy-plagued Gulf of Guinea. During his military career, Rawley has previously served as Commander of Special Operations Command Forward, East Africa, where he led a multidisciplinary team of Navy SEALs, Army Green Berets, and support personnel focused on defeating Islamic extremists. He has also deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq, the Persian Gulf, and Western Pacific.
