Revolutionizing Sustainable Investment: Co-Build/Co-Invest Partnership with B-works

B-works is leading the charge in revolutionizing the investment landscape for the decarbonization, clean energy, and e-mobility industries. Through our co-build/co-invest partnership, investors can now invest in early-stage startups in these industries with reduced risk.

Our team of experienced venture builders brings their expertise in business model validation, digital product development, and venture building, which complements the founders’ industry experience and helps reduce risk for investors.

By investing at an early stage, investors receive more equity for their investment, as the startups’ valuation will be lower. As more investors join our network, funding rounds for startups close faster, leading to faster progress towards achieving milestones.
