While small and medium-sized enterprises might be individually small, collectively they represent more than 95% of the world's businesses, and have a huge potential to improve the environment and create sustainable livelihoods. However, only a fraction of this investment potential is currently realized.
The Ground_Up Project addresses this challenge by providing a platform that connects green entrepreneurs and investors, as well as service and technology providers. Its Value Compass tool analyses projects to match investors' preference.
If you're an entrepreneur, you can use the platform to profile your environmental project, extend your reach, and gain access to the resources you need to grow. If you're an investor, you can use the platform to find and connect with thousands of small environmental projects.
