OnGreen Clearinghouse for Greentech Technologies & Stakeholders

Green business startups require marshalling many assets -- and Nikhil Jain is providing a network of support services for Los Angeles (and beyond) cleantech entrepreneurs.

"Ideas are dime a dozen. Its all about vetting out an idea and building a profitable company out of it while keeping the needs of the customer first and foremost in mind," explains Nikil Jain, serial entrepreneur and investor in clean tech.

"Along the way, an entrepreneur will have to build a good team, raise capital, develop an organization, take the idea to the market while creating value for the company's shareholders. It is also very important to have a triple-bottom line impact strategy for your company.

"The best of ideas can fail if not implemented correctly." So Jain has created a network of information and financial services for clean tech and green entrepreneurs.

OnGreen is a global clearinghouse for greentech, matching supply with demand by connecting the dots between the various stakeholders and technologies, academia, investment, government, startups, service providers and Fortune 1,000 companies.

Some of the challenges that an Entrepreneur faces when giving birth to a new business are:

  1. Building the right team
  2. A Feasibility Analysis
  3. Raising capital to launch the business
  4. Doing a proof of concept
  5. Intellectual property protection
  6. Raising more capital
  7. Engaging with service providers for support services
  8. Raising even more capital
  9. Signing the first customer
  10. Delegate work to team and service providers
  11. Expand the business
  12. And right...Raise more capital

The OnGreen website was designed to make the Entrepreneur's life easier. And to bring him/her closer to Investors, Financiers and Service providers. We believe that this will help the Entrepreneur spend more time in building his green business rather than spending a large amount of time in trying to build the contacts to reach out to these groups of folks who he/she needs. Building a green business is complicated as such. We are here to make things simpler.

OnGreen is like a party host inviting you to join the online platform and meet others. They host Deal and Patent exchanges, a Directory of companies and experts, as well as a green Job Board, and discussion Forums.

The OnGreen project types include:

  • Agriculture
  • Energy Distribution & Efficiency
  • Green Products and Production
  • Green Busienss & Support
  • Renewable Energy
  • Waste & Pollution
  • Water Management
