With thousands of brands and businesses across Europe and the United States participating in philanthropic projects since the start of the pandemic, there is a massive need and demand to make it easy, faster and cheaper to integrate social impact investments as a strategic business play for long term business and social impact growth.
Today there is a degree of consensus among people on maintaining human dignity, opportunity and the need to make an impact with every transaction. However, SMEs are still struggling to meet this rising demand.
Many models exist with a strong sense of purpose; yet, the lack of a systemic solution to the challenges they are aiming to solve contradicts one of the key selling points for developing mission-driven business models: The mutual benefits of increased reputation and profit and that is what 144 offers.
144 helps small and medium-sized businesses invest for social impact in exchange for shares (tokenized), with a strong focus on social, environmental, and financial returns.
Remove social impact obligations from your customers and convert them into a long-term corporate strategy that generates both social impact and financial ROI.
The story goes, sometime between the 1950s and 1960s in East Africa, a mathematical problem from an Italian professor was used as an example to demonstrate the types of problems they might one day solve if they were able to attend a European educational institution. A young man in the class solved the problem within minutes providing the sum of 144. That young man was Ismail Duale, our founder’s grandfather, aka 144 (a nickname given to him by his classmates). A tale on the inequality in society’s views towards minority/emerging markets. We aim to balance the scale of opportunity and investment for a brighter more equitable future.
Advancements in our society’s well-being, purchasing power, and capabilities.
