Many Supporting One That Affect Many
Clean Reach brings global ocean energy leaders, entrepreneurs, communities and contributors together to raise money, share ideas, and join in the growing ocean energy conversation.
Clean Reach effects change by providing immediate and direct support to those developing new technologies or ambitious communities that wish to lead the world in new ocean energy sources. With your help, we can power the future!
We’re glad you’re here and interested in learning more about who we are.
Clean Reach uniquely marries two growing industries: ocean energy and crowdfunding.
Our project-and contribution-based crowdfunding platform creates a high profile, low risk way for ocean energy visionaries to raise capital for innovative projects. By raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, crowdfunding supplements traditional funding sources and connects passionate supporters to forward-thinking ideas.
You don’t have to lay out millions to help.
With crowdfunding, anyone can tip the balance to make change happen. That’s what makes it such a powerful force—the people. By joining together for a greater purpose, people just like you can make amazing things happen.
So what makes crowdfunding through Clean Reach special?
We allow you to be authentic in your contributions—to support something in line with your values and beliefs. When you invest in ideas through Clean Reach, you support more than technology. You support a cause and propel the success of an industry that has the capacity to save the world billions in energy costs.
