Pathways2Ownership (P2O) offers a step-by-step design education and development training-session process that builds a project creators capacity to implement small and mid-sized projects with the following attributes: social, ecological, mixed-use, multi-phased, and a high-level of public inclusion. P2O assists their clients to assemble what they have into a base layer of resources that name and frame a range of project initiative options that will motivate their community into collective action to create needed FUELINGMAIN (FMsupported systems.


Project creators build another line of business by working with their municipality/county clients to generate and implement numerous infrastructure, community services and sustainability projects between $50,000 and $50 million that are either sitting in reports, as additions to existing funded projects, and/or designed as public-private-partnerships, with small-, mid-sized firm access.

Additionally, FM offers the ability for project creators to build an invested public  for implementing successive projects with your clients. Locally focused and the impact investment community is an $8.7 trillion dollar plus market (Morgan Stanley 2012 report) that is rapidly growing, has few places to go, seeks to build citizen interest and access to appropriate financial structures that create scaling project flow within communities.

FUELINGMAIN is an online initiative-management platform to implement project offerings that build strong, vibrant communities generating local knowledge that enables citizens to invest in projects that are designed to circulate local public goods and wealth.

Step one

A project is put into the FM system as an initiative to raise awareness, gain support, generate feedback, realize efficiencies, save money, deliver better overall outcomes. (optional)

Step two

When ready, the project is put forth as an offering that citizens and institutions can invest in.

Step three

The project is funded and implemented.

Step four

FM manages investor communications and distributions, while you build a citizen investor base for successive projects.

Industry Sectors

  • You have access to additional capital for projects that are already funded but where the citizens did not get everything they wanted and/or to enhance, generate and implement projects embedded in sustainability and resiliency reports.

  • Positions you into the base layer revenue financing calculation as a key project creator working with cities and counties under public-private-partnership agreements that are designed to generate short-, mid- and long-term revenues to your firm.

  • Innovate new ways to think, visualize and plan a clients development path.
