Our History Timeline
The evolution of Positive Planet US.
Called PlaNet Finance, we operated primarily to fundraise in the US in support of projects in Africa and the Middle East of the Positive Planet Foundation, an international charity headquartered in France.
Renamed Positive Planet US, we refocused on serving entrepreneurs in the U.S. by running a business accelerator for underserved entrepreneurs. 3 Cohorts completed with BIPOC/Women entrepreneurs. 50% in STEM businesses, 86% BIPOC and 93% Women entrepreneurs.
Strategy Reset, we re-envisioned our charter to build a scalable high-impact model (Propel accelerator) that includes long-term support for entrepreneurs (Pacer community) and a tech-enabled innovative solution to ease access to support available in the entrepreneur-enablement ecosystem (Aggregator Platform). Launched a Pilot Cohort with the redesigned Propel accelerator - leveraging Gen AI and with committed support for 3 years post program.
Building for Scale, work underway to pilot the Online Community and build the foundations of our Platform solution - to solve the problem of access and unlock the power of information to help underserved entrepreneurs find the help they need.
