Introducing 144, a game-changing startup founded by Daariq, Tobi and Gisele, with a mission to simplify social impact and innovation-driven investing for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and their customers. By providing a platform that streamlines & gamifies the investment process, 144 enables SMEs to combine social responsibility with long-term business goals, creating both financial returns and social impact for their investments.
The major challenges faced by SMEs in social impact and innovation-driven investing are the lack of knowledge, the complexity of the concept & process, and the high barriers to entry. 144 addresses these issues by connecting SMEs with a curated list of innovative/impact-driven startups and projects. This enables businesses and their customers to invest in startups in exchange for equity, creating a mutually beneficial relationship where both the SME and the startup can achieve their respective objectives.
By streamlining the investment process, 144 removes the bureaucracy, complexity, and barriers associated with traditional investing. This enables businesses to seamlessly invest in startups that drive social, environmental, and financial returns while reinforcing their reputation and mission-driven business models. Furthermore, these investments can also foster customer loyalty through the platform by encouraging their customers to get in on the action and aligning business objectives with community needs.
The team at 144 is committed to empowering SMEs to create a lasting impact on their communities, customers, and industries through social impact investing. 144 aims to revolutionize the way businesses approach social responsibility through their business model and contribute to a more sustainable and equitable future.
