The SunFunder team, advisors and partners are a diverse group with extensive expertise and leadership in solar energy finance and technology, crowdfunding and international development.
Hub Ventures helps high caliber entrepreneurs build their world-changing startups better and faster. SunFunder participated in the Hub Ventures Spring 2013 cohort along with six other incredible high-impact startups.
SunFunder won the Cleantech Goes Social contest, which challenged companies to “leverage Facebook’s billion person network to accelerate cleantech and increase engagement in sustainability”. SunFunder was awarded a prize of $25,000 in addition to ongoing implementation support from Facebook.
Orrick is a leading international law firm with deep expertise working with solar energy, crowdfunding and microfinance businesses and organizations. They have provided SunFunder with pro bono legal services and we can't thank them enough.
The Stiefel Family Foundation is a hybrid nonprofit which makes seed-stage investments in renewable energy startups and gives away the proceeds as grants to sustainability and job-creation programs in the US and Middle East. They provided SunFunder with matching funds to support the dollar-for-dollar matching loan during our Solar Lights Holiday Challenge. We're extremely grateful for their generosity.
