New York, New York (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Geostellar, a leading online solar rooftop marketplace, announced today it has closed its $1 million round of funding with Return on Change, an online investment platform. Making use of the JOBS Act, Geostellar (http://www.returnonchange.com/Geostellar) successfully raised the million dollar round in three months. Noted as the “KAYAK of solar rooftop installations”, Geostellar helps homeowners secure the best deals on solar rooftop panels by comparing and tailoring a variety of installation and financing plans. The majority of the capital raised will be used to further develop Geostellar’s platform to facilitate interactions between solar sales agents and homeowners, and an API for integration with third-party Web sites and mobile tools.
“Return on Change was particularly helpful in finding the right investors for us. They had all the information in front of them, and pushing the ‘Invest’ button was a simple way to express their interest in participating. It was easy for me to update the site, rather than circulating new documents…Raising capital online since the JOBS Act makes it much easier to spread the word, get potential investors engaged and provide information,” the CEO of Geostellar, David Levine stated.
Geostellar set the terms for their raise on Return on Change. Howard Teich, an investor of Geostellar stated, “The ease of Return on Change's investment program allowed me to invest in one of the most important companies on the planet [Geostellar]. Without Return on Change I would not have been able to show up and take action to participate…”
“We believe Geostellar is a clear example of a business that has profit potential for investors and long term sustainable value. Our team had a great time working alongside Geostellar’s team, collaborating on sharing the opportunity with potential investors to reach the $1 million goal. Additionally, Geostellar’s proactive strategy in attracting investments was paramount to their successful fundraise. We’re excited to form a long term relationship with Geostellar and see how we can continue to be of value to their growth,” Sang H. Lee, CEO of Return on Change shared.
