GoParity smashes crowdfunding target in its mission to support sustainability innovation

Lisbon-based GoParity reached its crowdfunding target of €1.2 million in just one hour and is now accepting ‘overfunding’ – inviting the community to become a shareholder. The fintech startup is empowering people and companies to use their money for good and is scaling fast. 

Founded in 2017, GoParity is a pioneering impact finance platform, empowering users to put their money into projects and innovations that are bringing about positive change. The startup opened up an equity crowdfunding round this week and hit its €1.2 million target in just one hour. 

The round was led by the European impact investment fund Mustard Seed Maze (MSM). Given the high demand to participate in the funding, the goal has been raised and the platform is now accepting ‘overfunding’ as it opens up to community investors. 

The Lisbon-headquartered platform has now gathered together a community of 24k users and has funded about  200 impact projects in several countries around the world, across Europe, South America and Africa. 

The Portuguese startup’s mission is to democratize sustainable finance. By inviting customers and partners to become shareholders and have a say in the future of the company, Goparity aims to lead by example. After the launch of its new app last month at a private event in Lisbon, Goparity now intends to invest in expanding across Europe and Canada and in developing the product by adding new ways to save money and invest. To do this, it will grow the team and is hiring for marketing, development, risk and operations.

Success is no accident, it is hard work and perseverance. Congratulations to the entire team at GoParity on your funding. I wish you all the best in your ventures.
