Raise Green is committed to helping create a more healthy, just, and sustainable world by confronting environmental challenges by implementing impactful projects, building equity and reducing exposure in vulnerable communities, and creating new investment pathways that are accessible to anyone.
The company is ran by Franz Hochstrasser and Matthew Moroney. The two look fairly young based purely on looking at their headshots, but their experience and resumes are impressive to say the leasts.
CEO and co-founder, Franz Hochstrasser. Served as Senior Advisor to the Special Envoy for Climate Change at the U.S. Department of State, working on the team that successfully negotiated the Paris Agreement.
COO, Matthew Moroney spent four years investigating contaminated sites and assisting in the permitting of new data centers. He holds a Master’s in Environmental Management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (F&ES) and a Bachelor’s of Environmental Science with a chemistry minor from Western Washington University.

Earnings & Data
No earnings data is currently available for analysis, however our team at Kaxlo has been impressed with the Raise Green due diligence procedures for identifying appropriate investments.
When it comes to social entrepreneurship investments often times they can become poor investments if the businesses don’t have an appropriate balance of social impact and profits, however this doesn’t seem to be the case with Raise Green as they highlighted the importance of both factors in their screening criteria.
The team uses the RAISE Model: Revenue—Ambition—Impactful—Social—Environmental
When it comes to fees charged to the businesses to use the Raise Green platform, the fee’s are some of the highest for equity crowdfunding. Although there are high fees, we believe this may be justified as it is a niche platform focused only on sustainable/green industry.
