ABOUT THE GROUND_UP PROJECT
The Ground_Up Project is a deal-sourcing platform for sustainability.
We partner with entrepreneur networks and international organizations to source impact ventures looking for funding under US $20M.
Open to all impact ventures, since 2018 the platform only lists investment-ready ventures.
WHAT WE DO
In order to maximize opportunity and impact for entrepreneurs, investors, and partners, we designed a platform to:
Standardize and validate information about small impact ventures and their impact
Provide insights into investment-readiness of individual ventures
Create connections 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.
