ABOUT THE GROUND_UP PROJECT
The Ground_Up Project is a deal-sourcing platform for sustainability. As the leading platform for impact ventures looking for under $20M, we achieve scale through our proprietary Value Compass, which analyses and scores projects, and aggregates portfolios to match investor requirements.
WHAT WE DO
In order to maximize opportunity and impact for entrepreneurs, investors, and resource-providers, we have designed a platform to:
- Standardize and validate information about small impact ventures and their impact
- Provide insights into business risk and reward
- Visualize trends and aggregated data
- Create collaborations among users
WHY WE DO IT
While small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) might be individually small, collectively they represent more than 95% of the world's businesses, and have a huge untapped potential to improve the environment and create sustainable livelihoods. That’s why we focus on small impact ventures. These are for-profit businesses with a clear, positive social and environmental impact in any sector, in need of under 20 miliion USD. For examples ranging from organic farming to clean energy, please see The Ground_Up Project Blog.
