Explain your project in details:

We have built a web platform where individuals or companies can invest into renewable energy projects, gain a hefty return on investment (+5% interest rate) and do good for the environment.Our main mission is to accelerate transition to a sustainable energy by lowering entry barriers for investments into renewables, while generating attractive financial returns to our customers thus proving the World that making an IMPACT and making money in the same time is possible.Our business model is to take small sums of money from a large number of investors/individuals that will be invested into renewable energy projects across the globe, providing clean energy for people, and a huge financial return for investors in the renewables. This model is called crowd-investing, it is similar to crowdfunding and platforms like Kickstarter, except you don't receive a product for your support, you get your money back with a hefty return on your investment.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Even though a lot of companies have pledged to be zero carbon by 2030, still a very small amount of energy is produced from renewable sources. Most of the experts and reports from the UN and other institutions claim that countries lack of money to transfer to zero carbon economy. On the other hand, returns on bank savings are around 1% and people are basically losing money with inflation. Energy Shift is solving both problems, hard working people are receiving a hefty return on their investments while doing good, and renewable energy projects and countries are getting funds they need thus accelerating the transition to renewables.The important thing to mention here is that renewable energy power plants can last up to 25 years, though a lot of experts say it can be up to 50 years. That means a whole lot of impact being made throughout the years. Also, I would like to mention that we are a social business as well, donating part of our profits to tree planting NGOs, thus helping out the environment even more (1 tree removes about 1kg of CO2 from the air).

Filip is an innovator, he successfully invented a smart plug, patented it, and sold it to a local company in Croatia. Also, few years ago he helped start a desalination company that is operating today, called Aquasolis, but after some disagreement in the founding team, after a year in the company he left. Now he's focus is solely on this project. To make this a reality he learned how to code in Python and how to do the Web development, which he spent months learning.
