Brady K Wood
With over twenty-five years of restaurant, entertainment and real estate development experience, Brady has founded a wide variety of start-up and institutional investment ventures. At twenty years old, he purchased a local dive-bar while attending Southern Methodist University. That investment yielded five more restaurants, three live music venues, three drive-ins, three music festivals, a record label and a retail store. Proceeds from entertainment concepts were parlayed into a love for real estate and resulted in many impactful projects and historic restorations. In 2005, he founded INCAP Fund, a private equity real estate fund that invested and developed over $250 million in urban residential and mixed-use infill projects.
In 2013, Brady created WoodHouse, a food & beverage, hospitality, sports advisory and investment firm that leverages decades of entertainment experience with a lifetime of real estate investing to create provocative and culturally significant solutions. Current assignments include The Star, Dallas Cowboys’ new $1.5B world headquarters, numerous hotel turnarounds along the East Coast and two master-planned communities in the DFW area.
