Kickstart Session: Breaking Down Misconceptions Between Contractors & Developers

Please Join us for our Next Kickstart Session!
Bridging the Gap: Breaking Down Misconceptions Between Contractors and Developers

Kickstart Sessions complement the Jumpstart Wilmington program and offer information around specific topics related to the development process.   

In this session, Bobby Judge, Business Development Manager at Bancroft Construction Company, will explore the dynamics between construction managers, general contractors and developers, uncovering and dismantling misconceptions that may hinder effective collaboration and project success.
Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the underlying factors that contribute to those misconceptions, such as miscommunication, differing priorities, and preconceived notions. Bobby will provide practical strategies for overcoming these barriers and building stronger, more productive relationships between contractors and developers.

Please register by March 15 to ensure receipt of the Zoom link needed to attend this session. We look forward to seeing you on March 18! 


Bobby Judge currently serves as the Business Development Manager and sits on the Senior Leadership Team for Bancroft Construction, an award-winning regional Construction Management firm.  With over 16 years of construction industry experience, Bobby’s primary responsibilities include fostering business opportunities for Bancroft while managing an annual pipeline of $1B worth of project opportunities throughout the Mid-Atlantic. While Bancroft Construction services many market sectors, Bobby primarily focuses on leading the preconstruction efforts for local and regional real estate development opportunities ranging in value up to $80MM. Under Bobby’s leadership, Bancroft has recently developed and grown a specialized multifamily division, which has successfully managed and is planning approximately $400MM worth of construction activities and includes prominent clients such as Delle Donne & Associates, Washington Place Equities, Viking Residential, and Berger Rental Communities.
Bobby is active within local, regional, and nationwide real estate development associations such as the Urban Land Institute (ULI), National Association for Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP), Commercial-Industrial Realty Council (CIRC), and the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC). Bobby recently served as Co-Chair for the ULI Delaware Council and sat on the Advisory Board for the ULI Philadelphia Chapter.
Jumpstart Wilmington was launched to help Wilmington residents to become developers of their own neighborhood through quality, community-focused real estate development training and financing options. Our program is modeled after the original Jumpstart Germantown Program, which was created by Ken Weinstein to facilitate the revitalization of the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia through high quality residential renovations.
Increased local developer capacity in Wilmington is the key to scaling development activity and revitalizing communities more rapidly. We see residents of Wilmington communities as the best resource for neighborhood revitalization, as many have potential to effect positive change in their neighborhoods. Jumpstart Wilmington can provide aspiring developers who live in Wilmington communities with the skills, knowledge, and support they need to rehabilitate key properties, one at a time. In the absence of established real estate developers willing to invest in smaller scale projects, this program will cultivate a force of new local developers who currently reside in Wilmington or have a commitment to improving Wilmington neighborhoods.
