Raise Green is a platform that allows people with as little as $100 to invest in projects that promote clean energy and climate solutions in their local communities. It relies on crowdfunding, so you don’t have to be a solar finance guru or a billionaire to join those building a better tomorrow — and gain an opportunity to earn a healthy return.

In the words of CEO and Co-Founder Franz Hochstrasser, “Invest today and make an impact you can see.”

In today’s podcast, Host Nico Johnson talks with Franz and Raise Green Co-Founder Jackie Logan, the company’s Chief Investment Officer (CIO), about their support for the innovators and entrepreneurs on the frontline of climate solutions. 

Raise Green builds upon Franz’s background in policy, climate change, environmental, and social issues and advances Jackie’s more than 20 years of capital markets experience.

Join us for an introduction to the powerful concept of Regulation Crowdfunding, a relatively new financing method that pools small individual investments or contributions from many people. Raise Green — launched in 2018 with a $25,000 Climate Change Solutions grant from Yale University — aims to democratize investing. 

Since its inception, Raise Green has mobilized about $6 million for climate solutions with the help of some 3,000 investors and 20,000 members. Listen to the podcast to discover how you can join the crowd.
