About the company

greenvest is the world’s first crowd investment platform for energy efficiency projects. In 2006 trend researcher and futurist Patrick Mijnals had the idea for this innovative concept. His vision: energy efficiency as the impetus for a climate-friendly economy and society has to be promoted; ordinary people should be invited to invest in it. In the 2012 event “Startup-Weekend Rhein-Main” the opportunity to develop this concept further was offered to a group of experts in various fields. Within two days this team created a funding model for energy efficient projects with public participation based on Mijnals’ idea. This concept convinced the expert jury and the team won the Startup-Weekend.
