Pitch-a-Pitch - In the Middle of a Trust Game
Pitch-a-Pitch is a fundraising platform for CleanTech start-ups.
Currently, along with existent environmental and social issues people are discouraged to engage into green solutions development for sustainable growth. There is a lack of knowledge into this science and investors cannot find potentially viable projects to support. No any tool currently exists to fill in this gap. Resources allocated for CleanTech projects are currently limited to state funds or support of international organizations. Private investments remain at critically low level.
Our mission is to pave opportunity for green businesses and consumers with their green initiatives. We provide open access to one platform for both investors and idea owners in order to get funding for viable ideas and increase level of green investments in Azerbaijan. At the same time, we support investors by offering unique investment portfolio management tool, that provides personalized most suitable investment portfolio from existing on the platform projects in terms of given data and requested requirements.
