bettervest is the world’s first crowdfunding platform, founded back in 2012 to finance citizen-led energy efficiency projects. Since then, the company has continued to develop and broaden its horizons: In the meantime, bettervest has already financed over 100 sustainable and future-oriented projects from a wide range of sectors with more than 10,000 investors – always with their core mission in mind: to shape a more climate-friendly and social economy and society in the long term. When selecting projects, bettervest is guided by the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, or SDGs for short. These 17 goals with their 169 targets are each dedicated to a global challenge. Each bettervest project addresses several SDGs at the same time, as it has a positive impact on the ground.
