Home: Welcome

Sydney is a serial entrepreneur on a mission to push humanity forward and live interestingly. 


She has built five successful companies at the mere age of twenty-two. With seven years of experience in the commercial real estate industry, she is both an active investor and developer in multifamily, retail, office and hotel. In 2019, She founded Daring Greatly with a mission to supporting women, LGBTQIA+ and minority founders in an effort to actively change the future of businesses, innovation and representation of tomorrow. 

In Sydney's most revolutionizing venture, she's built the world-changing, industry standard for real estate visualization through Zukurri. Imagine bringing a site plan to life before you build, inviting your stakeholders to a 3D immersive story and experience that can be viewed remotely, scaled true to size, and acts as a virtual tour of your development before you build. Through the use of AR, VR and AI, she's primed these technologies for simplicity with the core mission designed into the product, making each customer, user and partner a vital part of the mission to push humanity forward


As one reporter put it, "Her magnetic personality, killer work-ethic, and unapologetic self-promotion propel her with dashing speed towards a success that is unconfined by the lanes of industry." She's the host of The Sydney Phillips Podcast, an author, passionate futurist, a keynote speaker and an amateur race car driver. Named in the Top 100 US Business Leaders, Top 25 Most Influential Women of Commercial Real Estate,  this young mogul has also earned the title ‘Young Female Entrepreneur of the Year’. 


As she considers herself to be a “Jane of All Trades” - Sydney’s interests follow one theme: To push humanity forward. Of which, includes; spatial computing (AR/VR/XR), the open metaverse, transhumanism, human longevity, brain-computer interfaces, haptics, space exploration, multi-planet habitation, 3D printing, robotics, AI, AGI, blockchain, cryptocurrency, quantum computing, domed cities, drones, holography, neuroinformatics, and space elevators. 


This story is just getting started. 

Real Estate

commercial real estate

In a story unlike any other, Sydney began learning the ins and outs of commercial real estate after her life changed unexpectedly at the age of fourteen. In the depths of grief after losing her father, Sydney experienced an overnight sense of duty, honor, and legacy that drove this teenager to learn and build her name in the industry, all while still in high school and through her college years. 

She's built two successful and growing commercial real estate companies specializing in retail. In January of 2020, she added 'commercial real estate developer' to her portfolio, in a development project building the next generation of office, multi-family, hotel, and retail in the heart of Kansas City. 


Zukurri & AR/VR 

In June of 2020, Sydney started Zukurri through her own frustrations with the lack of speed in the real estate industry. She realized in both built and under development properties, the lack of visualization was paralyzing to the process, for numerous players in the industry.  


Real estate agents and commercial real estate developers alike are changing the status quo through Zukurri's powerful visualization that allows them to communicate, market, and sell - better, faster, and smarter. The company has received national attention for its revolutionary technology that encompasses augmented and virtual reality coupled with artificial intelligence.

Her mission to 'push humanity forward' drives every decision of her life. In fierce pursuit of this mission, a capital firm investing in women, LGBTQ+, and minority founders, Daring Greatly, was brought to life.


In one interview, when asked about her why behind Daring Greatly, Sydney put it blatantly. "Sitting back and letting the world work out the biggest issues is just not my style. Everyone deserve an opportunity, and that's what we're giving them."
