About Abundance Generation
Abundance Generation is the UK’s first regulated investment platform enabling anyone to invest in UK renewable energy projects, including solar, wind, hydro and biomass.
The platform enables people to lend from as little as £5 to help build UK wind and solar farms, while earning regular cash returns. When it launched in 2011 it revolutionised the way people invest for their long term future. It creates value for lenders and borrowers that traditional finance can’t by offering customers the chance to make money while supporting the planet. All Abundance projects support the transition to clean energy future, creating a better environment for future generations, so we can all breathe air that’s a little cleaner and look forward to a more sustainable future.
The judges felt that Abundance Generation has established an important business opportunity to enable people to lend money online to build clean energy projects. The strong team is led by an impressive woman founder who has brought her experience from financial services to establish a disruptive model and achieve strong traction. The investor syndicate led by Angel Academe, comprises a group of experienced women angels who have brought strategic and market support, as well as further funding to help drive the successful growth of the business.
Many thanks to Angel Academe for nominating Abundance Generation for this award.
We look forward to following the Abundance Generation growth story in the years ahead!
