ABOUT RAISE GREEN

Raise Green is a financial technology company that allows anyone to invest in local, community resilience using our SEC licensed and FINRA approved crowdfunding investment portal. We offer a two-sided marketplace in which solar project creators can crowdfund their projects and individuals can invest in those projects. Our inclusive financing model can be used for any project that has a contractual cash flow such as community solar, microgrids, electrical vehicle infrastructure, community agriculture, energy efficiency, and battery deployments — as long as social and environmental benefits are at the core of their design. We crowdfund a healthy, just, and sustainable future that allows anyone to own resilient, local infrastructure.

Raise Green’s Renewable Energy Finance Intern will be a vanguard in finance charge against climate change —  this is the defining decade. We have to make a difference.
