ABOUT THE GROUND_UP PROJECT
The Ground_Up Project is a deal-sourcing platform for sustainability. As the leading platform for environmental companies under $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 green entrepreneurs, investors, and resource-providers, we have designed a platform to:
- Standardize and validate information about small green 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 improve the environment and create sustainable livelihoods. That’s why we focus on small environmental impact companies. These are SMEs with a clear, positive, environmental impact in any sector, in need of under 10 million USD. Please see our blog for examples ranging from organic farming to clean energy.
