Focusing on socially conscious start-ups
Each year in the US thousands of start-ups are launched annually. Helping socially conscious startups gain support and funding will only make our future brighter. Investors often express interest in companies based on their mission, be it green technology, social justice, or sustainability. Bringing these specific investors in contact with start-ups that check all the boxes can make investing more worth while for everyone.

Return on Change (ROC) has built its platform on a crowdfunding model. The difference is that their investors are taking a stake in the start-ups, and are looking for a reasonable rate of return. Since launching in 2012, RoC has focused on 'socially conscious' start-ups.
