Solve will lead the inaugural marketing campaign for Steward, the world’s first crowdfunding platform for small-sized sustainable farmers to raise financing online. Dubbed CrowdFarming, the platform connects farmers and individual investors creating a win-win relationship: small farmers get the land and equipment they need to farm, while investors earn a return on their money, while making a positive impact – on peoples’ lives, local economies, and the planet.
Based in London, Steward was founded by CEO Dan Miller, co-founder of highly successful Fundrise, the first investment platform to create a simple, low-cost way for anyone to invest in commercial real estate. Miller’s family heritage in farming inspired his vision to create Steward. “We believe small, sustainable farmers make the best stewards. Their farming practices and business models are in harmony with the earth, health needs, and the wellbeing of the communities they serve,” said Miller.
“We believe in the mission of small, sustainable farmers to positively impact the quality of our food and the health of the land,” said Solve CEO John Colasanti. “When Dan approached us, we were all in. Steward is more than an investing platform, it’s a movement we support and believe in.”
