HOW WE ALIGN
with Municipalities & Counties (Project Focused)
Pathways2Ownership (P2O) offers an assessment and capacity building education and development process that builds your capacity to implement small and mid-sized sustainability, community services and infrastructure projects. P2O assists their clients to assemble what they have into a base layer of resources that name and frame a range of project initiative and offering options that will motivate their community into collective action to create needed FUELINGMAIN (FM) supported systems.
Municipalities and counties have 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 in the minds of city officials and citizens that need to be implemented.
The Impact investment community is an $8.7 trillion dollar market (Morgan Stanley 2012 report) that is rapidly growing, has few places to go and 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.
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)
When ready, the project is put forth as an offering that citizens and institutions can invest in.
The project is funded and implemented.
FM manages investor communications and distributions, while you build a citizen investor base for successive projects.
Include but are not limited to affordable housing, broadband, coastal waterways management, critical infrastructure, emergency services, energy efficiency, green buildings, libraries, parks and recreation, renewable energy, student housing, transportation, water and wastewater management, and more…
