BOSTON, MA, April 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- ValueSetters, Inc. (OTC:VSTR) announced today the launch of its Impact Investing Consulting Practice. The company’s clients in this space include ORPC, Inc., a leader in marine renewable energy, and Vantem Global Inc., with its proprietary building solution designed to ease the $10 trillion global housing crisis.
“Impact or mission-based investing is playing an increasingly important role in the overall investment landscape,” said Cecilia Lenk, CEO of ValueSetters. “The global impact investing market more than doubled in size last year to reach $502 billion, according to the Global Impact Investing Network, and JP Morgan estimates that this asset class could grow to $1 trillion over the next ten years.”
“We are delighted to be working with several high impact, mission-based clients,” added Ms. Lenk. “Ocean Renewable Power Company (ORPC, Inc.), for example, has developed an award-winning, proprietary energy solution that harnesses the power of water currents with none of the greenhouse gases generated by fossil fuels. With their current technology, the company estimates its total addressable market at almost $480 billion.”
ORPC, Inc. is raising growth capital through an offering recently launched on Netcapital.
“We chose to work with the ValueSetters team because it was clear from the start that they really understood our mission,” said Chris Sauer, ORPC Chairman, CEO and Co-founder. “Their expertise in marketing private capital offerings is a huge asset, and we appreciate their enthusiasm and collaborative approach.”
“The ValueSetters team is also excited to be working with Vantem Global,” said Ms. Lenk. “Vantem has developed a proprietary building system that allows homes to be built in as little as 7 days. It reduces costs by up to 25%, and homes built with Vantem panels are 5x more thermally efficient, significantly reducing heating and cooling costs.”
Vantem Global is also available for investment on Netcapital.
“We had heard great things about ValueSetters from one of their other clients,” said Chris Anderson, CEO of Vantem Global. “Their ability to attract both retail and institutional investor interest really stood out, and we are delighted with the high level of service that they provide,” added Mr. Anderson. “They really understand the importance of what we are trying to achieve and the positive potential impact our product could have in helping to address the global housing shortage.”
