Company Summary

CleanCrowd is a crowd-sourced revenue lending portal for early and growth stage green companies. Our PayItAround funding model solicits a crowd of individuals to lend money to companies they like. As revenue is generated, the principal is paid back and the interest paid forward to charities. This provides capital for companies that are too small or early for typical funding, and a way for the crowd to do twice the good while getting paid back.
