We have developed a system that can play a significant part in the creation of a sustainable future. The system is based on the new SEC regulations provided by the JOBS Act of 2012 (final rules issued in May 2016).
Clime-IT™, when ready for operation, will be a family of online Equity Crowdfunding (Crowdinvesting) platforms/portals serving various regions and countries. It will feature investment opportunities from businesses focused on climate change solutions (renewable energy, clean technologies, resilience, adaptation, mitigation and carbon-sequestration) and raising between $500K to $50M per year (maximums in the USA—limits will be adapted to each country's laws).
We are building a growing team comprised of scientists, academics, financial modelers, platform developers, world-class marketing groups, fired-up sustainability graduates, and a securities attorney who has specialized in the JOBS Act since its inception. We are also
constantly creating strategic alliances with a number of organizations around the world that will ensure the quality of projects posted on Clime-IT™.
Given the newness of this industry, there is a lot of confusion and misinformation out there. We will include a substantial educational component to help entrepreneurs maneuver through the process of raising capital under these new regulations and to guide new investors through the process as well.
In the spirit of the JOBS Act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups), successfully funded businesses will post positions that need to be filled and make Clime-IT™ a hub for green jobs.
Our business model also includes a grant system to help cover some of the various fees involved in preparing to launch a crowdinvesting campaign (CPA for audited financials, securities attorney for legal compliance, marketing content and production).
We will also promote a climate of shared resources and create a community of support for all the players involved.
More than just an investment portal we are developing Clime-IT™ as a comprehensive identity network that will connect like-minded people globally and locally; facilitate discussions, introductions and exchange of information; feature a calendar of events and initiatives by category and/or location. All this under one over-arching principle: Protecting our precious planet with people, passion, purpose and profits.
By providing resources for start-ups to ease and speed up their capital raising process, we increase their odds of success. By providing investors with statistically above-average success rate projects, we increase the odds of successful investments. By increasing the number of successful capital raises, projects have access to an ever-growing pool of investors and in turn, Clime-IT™ can provide them with more resources.
Our over-all strategy is one of circular economy in that it is restorative, self-sustaining and regenerative.
