INVESTMENT RAISING PROGRAMS

Greenbackers Investment Showcase

“The Greenbackers Showcase" - an unique online investment platform, dynamically introducing qualifying ventures to Greenbackers global network of investment funds. For Seed Stage, Series A, B & C opportunities.

Climate ventures (earthtech, oceantech, cleantech, all related subsectors) can apply to meet active, pre-qualified Investors from the Greenbackers global network: Corporate Ventures, Technology VC’s and Private Equity Funds, Impact Investors, Family Offices​, Asset & Project Finance funds, Angel Syndicates and in the UK, EIS Funds.  

The Greenbackers team proactively maximizes investor focus on the platform and co-ordinates discussions with participating ventures and investors who regularly visit. This is not a ‘post and pray someone sees you’ type of program – this is active, dynamic fundraising that gets results.

Having emerged from beta testing the platform during the pandemic throughout 2020/21, we now have over 300+ funds currently participating from around the world and are on track to have over 500 funds participating by mid 2022. Opportunities to ‘pitch’ these investors are standard. Rather than a single day, selected ventures get continuous funding support, for a minimum of 6 months – extendable if desired.

Here’s how it works:  

We have a stage-gated process to determine whether we can add value and are specific about the ventures that we take on to support, so you’ll need to apply to be accepted.

Step 1: Purchase a ticket to apply to the program and commence an initial investment readiness evaluation – to enable Greenbackers to assess your suitability for our Showcase platform. Cost: UK£75+VAT or approx USD$100/Euro€90.

This assessment takes 15-20 minutes to complete and helps us determine how ‘match-fit’ your venture is for our investor community. You’ll get a report and structured feedback on your current readiness level and can then decide if you want to go to Step 2, to create and submit a full ‘investment profile’ to our Showcase platform, for consideration by the Greenbackers team.  

Step 2: Create your detailed investment profile on Greenbackers Showcase platform. Your profile is what Greenbackers will review in order to evaluate your viability for the Showcase – and what investors will see during your Fundraise after we help you to fine-tune it. See FAQ’s here

Criteria – you should be prepared to meet the following when applying to the program

  • An innovative business in our sector (climate/cleantech/ocean economy or related)
  • Seeking Seed or Series A, B or C equity finance or Convertible Loan Note and have raised a funding round previously (i.e. NOT pre-seed)

Step 3: If accepted into the program, Greenbackers will help you fine-tune your investment profile to ensure it is as compelling as possible and encourages investors to engage.
