VertueLab acts as a conduit between promising cleantech innovators and the investors who empower their progress through support and access to capital.
They merge innovation, technology, entrepreneurship, and impact investing to address and resolve global environmental challenges.
For innovators - they offer acceleration programs to help their companies grow and attract capital.
For funders - they amplify their philanthropic and economic development goals.
For impact investors - they are a conduit for direct investing for a combination of financial return and measurable impact.
VertueLab is developing, alongside their portfolio companies, new impact investing models to fuel their growth and the tools to measure the environmental and social impact that their success brings.
VertueLab is the evolution of Oregon BEST, a non-profit economic development engine founded in 2007 and funded by the State of Oregon to support cleantech startups.
Their new name and priorities reflect the organization's evolving mission and strategies - providing access to critical support and funding for cleantech companies - and their expanding geographic reach deeper into the Pacific Northwest region.
