Jumpstart is a new energy-focused start-up that is designed to provide people with a concrete way to invest in clean energy. With irreversible climate change looming in the horizon, Jumpstart was founded to help combat these negative effects by providing a platform for regular people to invest in eco-energy solutions. Ultimately, the company hopes to convince more regular people to invest in clean energy who may not be able to directly fund large-scale eco-projects.
The start-up also plans to crowdfund some individual residential solar projects, primarily in communities that can't afford panels on their own. Jumpstart will also plan to use AI within these communities to evaluate potential customers' creditworthiness and need for solar panels. According to Jumpstart CEO Aoi Senju, "a lot of customers want to go solar, but just haven’t had the financing opportunity to do so."
