What is Vireo?
Vireo is a Human adventure which started in 2015 and which has continuously evolved to define the next generation green investment solution.
A bit of history
It’s a long process that brought the founders (Fred and Tony) and co-founders (Manu, Reno and Glen) together behind the whole concept of Vireo as the green digital revolution.
After almost 2.5 years trying to connect local green projects developers to international financial institutions, Fred and Tony pointed out the need for specific financing solutions for green projects in emerging countries. At that stage it was clear that there was an urgent need to create new financing channels to finance the significant number of untapped privately owned green projects and to satisfy the increasing demand of impact investors.
The first hybrid financing concept is developed based on standard fund structuration. Reno and Manu joined after having experienced similar problems in relation to the slow improvement of green development caused by the big disconnect between green development and climate mitigation policies and the realities on the ground for green project developers.
The first concept is adapted to a blockchain based concept. The new concept is similar to a digitalized and decentralized Asset Management company. Thanks to the blockchain, all existing barriers set by financial institutions are broken.
The concept is strenghten and the team enters into a partnership. The business plan and the concept are formalized. The first C# beta version of the valuation tool is working.
Vireo is registered in Singapore with the objective of providing the next generation green financing solution. The power of blockchain and best financing standards are merged to give birth to the Seeds and the Crops. Vireo’s objective is set: to become a regulated and transparent digital Asset Management company, providing equal and secured investment opportunities to everyone.
