Project Summary / Description:
Society must invest $2.3-$4.8T annually in renewable energy through 2050 (IPCC 2018), but only $681B was invested in 2016 (UNFCCC 2018), leaving an accumulating gap. Many individuals feel powerless about climate change. Most millenials (75%) believe they can influence climate change with their investments, but 80% are not invested in stocks (Morgan Stanley). We built our business on Regulation Crowdfunding that allows small investments in private companies via crowdfunding. We apply these regulatory changes to create opportunities for individuals to invest small amounts of money in local projects that directly deliver climate solutions alongside financial returns.

Impact on Underrepresented Groups:
We have collected a diverse team of young professionals who have the capacity and passion to help build our vision into reality. We strongly feel that having employees and partners from a variety of economic, social, and political backgrounds are required to forge resilient, enduring, and contagious solutions to climate change. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, class, or sexual orientation, and actively seek out intersectional and diverse professional and personal teammates and encourage participation, input and leadership across the broadest possible areas of perspectives, backgrounds and skills. By seeking to democratize the complex process of developing a clean energy or climate solution project, as well as the pathways to investing in and benefiting financially from these projects, we work shoulder to shoulder with environmental and social justice advocates. Equity is deeply ingrained in our ethos and corporate culture.

Raise Green is a platform to crowdfund equity investments into community climate cooperatives that democratize the ownership and benefits of the transition to a low-carbon economy and climate-resilient society. We are seeking to crowdfund a healthy, just and sustainable future by opening new financing pathways to tackle climate change, air pollution and income inequality. Our mission is to confront climate change through the deployment of impactful projects, reduce air pollution exposure in vulnerable communities, and create new investment pathways accessible to anyone.
