Friends, brothers in arms, and partners in crime: TLDR: Please help me spread the word about the company I started! (see links below) As many of you know I left my stable job three months ago and started a company with three other crazies (thus my lack of gaming lately). We are on the cusp of officially launching Spark, an online platform that allows individuals like you and me to invest directly in energy efficiency projects. Our mission is to make it possible for individual investors make a profit, make a difference, and build a more efficient economy. Energy efficiency is anything that makes buildings smarter consumers of energy (e.g. LED lights, boiler upgrades, automation systems) and it's a win-win for the economy and the environment. We'll be the first company to fund efficiency through "crowd" investment. If we do this right, crowd investment could help pave the way to billions of dollars invested, trillions of dollars saved in small businesses and communities, and huge reductions in pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. This company has been a labor of love for our team over the last year. Investors want this, the world needs this, and we'll pour everything we have into doing it right and going big. Now that we've raised most of the $750k to cover our first 1.5 yrs of operations, I can't tell you how excited we are to make this happen. The big day (the first of many) is tomorrow, Monday Jan. 20th. That's when our website and "how it works" video will launch. The thing we need most right now is for people to find out about Spark, follow us on social media, and sign up for email updates. That's how we'll attract our investment, and that's what will make or break us. That's where you fine folks can really help us out. Come tomorrow, here are a few ways you can help us go big:Share a link to our website (http://www.sparkfund.co/) on Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, and any other places you have conversations--and let the world know what you think about us!Like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/sparkfund)Follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/sparkfunder)Follow us on LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/company/3487305?trk=tyah&trkInfo=tas%3Aspark%20fund%2Cidx%3A1-1-1)Email this to anyone you think who would be excited about itAnd of course sign up for email updates on our website!
