Solvesting – Invest Wisely – Light the World
http://solvesting.com/

1.3 Billion people live without electricity, almost the same number without access to proper sanitation, and almost a billion without clean drinking water. Currently, there are billions of underserved consumers. These, and many more issues, can be resolved by tailoring affordable solutions that take int consumers’ actual needs and desires into account rather than selling them existing products that were designed for a different world. Solvesting is an investment bridge, providing micro-investors in developed countries with a portal for investing in the future of the developing world by financing the innovative companies that provide life-changing services to low-income consumers.
