What about Wunder Capital and our offering made you invest?
I had seen first-hand the mismatch of funding in the solar industry and was very familiar with the types of projects Wunder funds. I had also observed that a lot of people in the solar business were well intentioned, but not from strong business backgrounds. I was able to meet with a representative in person and was impressed with the business-centric view the rep had.
As an investor, how important is creating impact with your investment (specifically within the environmental sector)?
Actually I think it is more important that investments stand on their own and that’s exactly what I felt Wunder was enabling projects to do.
If given two potential investments, with similar risk, and similar returns would you prefer the solar investment, and why?
I’m not sure I’d prefer ALL solar investments, but Wunder’s offering is very straight-forward, meets a specific market barrier and was easy to execute.
Have you invested in any other alternative investing platforms?
Yes, I currently invest in a variety of start-up companies.
How did you hear about Wunder Capital?
I came across the name in several places and decided to look it up. Discovering Wunder was local to Boulder, I wrote to request a meeting. Got a great cup of coffee and introduction to the offering.
