Currently, it’s hard for social enterprises to raise capital. It takes 6 to 18 months from the time you apply for a grant to the time you get cash in the bank. By that time most startups have either gone out of business or pivoted.

At the same time, there is more capital than ever looking for good projects. What’s going on here?

We are on a mission to make an entrepreneurs’ search for capital as easy as finding an Airbnb by 2040.
