Investree, a crowdfunding platform, celebrates its second anniversary with the launch of the “2gether Towards the Future” campaign to help the country’s small business sector.
A venture of F(DEV) Digital Innovations and Ventures Inc. and Investree Singapore Pte Ltd., Investree Philippines is geared toward building a financially inclusive future for small businesses in the Philippines.
“Investree is focused on building the future and that future is a financially inclusive Philippines, where financial tools are more accessible to SMEs in order to sustain and expand their businesses,” said Alexander Capulong, country manager, Investree Philippines. “We strive to preserve the company’s agile growth to keep us equipped in pursuing this vision of the future.”
Launched in 2020, Investree Philippines provides financing solutions to local businesses through collaborative opportunities with investors. The company has served more than 100 SMEs and funded over 400 notes as of June 2022.
After securing its SEC-granted permanent license earlier this year, Investree Philippines is now looking to expand its partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in pursuit of their shared mission of providing SMEs with better access to finance, technology and innovation. In the coming months, Investree Philippines and DTI will work hand-in-hand in organizing educational campaigns through social media content, webinars, and events featuring relevant industry or entrepreneurial topics. Through this, Investree aims to expand its reach to more underserved and under-financed SMEs in the nation. Partnership opportunities with e-commerce platforms, payment aggregators, third-party logistics providers, and other tech-based platforms will advance the vision and mission of the crowdfunding platform while at the same time pursue the mandate of DTI.
In further amplification of its digital financial literacy efforts, Investree Philippines proudly joins hands with the Asian Institute of Management (AIM), an international management school and research institution in the country. Through this partnership, both the platform and institution shall fulfill their goal of connecting their respective stakeholders with potential SMEs, investors, and partners through collaboration among their networks. Informative programs and mutually-beneficial opportunities await to be executed, aside from generating employment under Investree Philippines’ growing team.
Investree Philippines connects businesses with institutional investors who want to help these enterprises while also securing a return on their investment. To sustain its objective to onboard more institutional investors that share the same mission of supporting SMEs and providing new avenues for development as we enter the post-pandemic era, Investree Philippines reinvents its Investor Dashboard with new features that promote convenience and better transparency. The dashboard now allows investors to assess investment risks more seamlessly. Investors can now also see information on the approved note and the SME that they are funding. Investors can also monitor their bids and manage their portfolios on the platform.
Investree Philippines also enhanced some of its website’s features to better serve all of its stakeholders. Besides a more dynamic look and friendlier navigation, the website now hosts pages containing partnership opportunities for interested institutional investors and anchors. The new Stories page features success stories of clients and other helpful and relevant information. Furthermore, the website allows registering via mobile devices for the convenience of interested SMEs.
