Everyone is an investor, and every investment has an impact. As that concept gains currency, more and more investors are looking to put their investment dollars to work in their communities, where they can have a positive impact. A community can be the neighborhood, state or region where a person lives. Or it may be a group that they identify with, such as ethnic heritage, or a passion (renewable energy, women-owned business, craft beer).
However, that natural and seemingly simple impulse has been difficult to act on. Community-based investment opportunities exist, but they are scattered across multiple organizations and are difficult for investors to discover.
Investibule solves that problem by gathering community-based investment opportunities spanning Kiva, Credibles, Direct Public Offerings and JOBS Act-enabled crowdfunding offerings onto one easy-to-use platform.
