Strengths
says, "inBalance is targeting a sizable yet niche market which should make growth much easier over time. Energy efficiency is also an area of growing concern."
says, "This is a growing market with big clients. Utility companies can be a tough market to break into, but once you're in, there is a lot of potential. Hydropower isn't going anywhere, so this is a ripe opportunity to capitalize on. When you consider a 25% increase in revenue potential, that's going to open doors."
Advice
says, "I would recommend providing more insight to each slide in your pitch - the more info we as investors have, the better we can make informed decisions - so talk about each one in more depth."
says, "I'd like to see the scale of the opportunity financially broken out just a bit more. The unit economics, sales cycle, and what needs to go right (wrong) to see the future forecasts play out as expected. Best of luck!"

What Investors Say

LEAD INVESTOR
Invested $1,000 this round
inBalance's work is essential to a sustainable future. As a principle at a leading energy efficiency organization, I recognize that there has been a longstanding gap in the energy industry and it has taken the sort of innovation that these brilliant minds have taken on as their shared vision. Together they have already reduced Carbon emission and their solution will ensure the sustainability of the energy industry for future generations. I believe that in as few as 10 years from now they could manage more renewable assets than any other company on the planet.
