Finance Catalyst


Our team of advisors works with project developers and companies. We provide free-of-cost services to connect qualified projects and companies to development finance institutions, project preparation support instruments, impact investors and commercial lenders. Please note that we do not provide any financial support or funding ourselves.

We offer a portfolio of services that is discussed with successful applicants and tailored to their needs. Our advisory services are provided by independent experts from the Finance Catalyst team and costs are fully covered by the donors of GET.invest. The amount of advisory time we provide is tailored to the specific needs of each client, and, provided good progress is made, can be adapted over time if and when needed.

The advisors and I have been working closely on this project. Their input, the professional financial model and their ‘finance speak’ during conference calls has helped a great deal. In addition, being a GET.invest-supported project built reputation with potential financiers.
