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 funding under US $10M, 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 and medium-sized businesses 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 make an impact and create sustainable livelihoods. That’s why we focus on SMEs with a clear, positive impact in any sector, in need of under 10 million USD. Please see our blog for examples ranging from organic farming to clean energy.
