I need money for my business. Can you help me?

We focus on the green sector which includes opportunities within the areas agriculture, energy, environment, and natural resources. Although we occasionally share contests, challenges, or funding opportunities for startups and entrepreneurs, we only include programs that are very specific (e.g., biotechnology for small-scale agriculture or sustainable energy solutions for the poor) and mostly international. Therefore, projects with a for-profit background will need to demonstrate a strong social component, in the proposed work, that aligns with one of our main areas of emphasis. Oftentimes, grants or mentorships identify calls for proposals for social enterprises ([eligibility tags]). If you are looking for seed money to start your own business, we recommend a microcredit lending platform instead.
