We believe big ideas can change the world. There is still a hidden potential for innovators across the globe that are living close to the cause and creating solutions to help society. All we need to do is look closer and support with the resources that we have.
To that end, we are proud to announce the launch of Olive Ventures, a crowd funding impact investment marketplace, where global citizens can make micro-investments in promising new ideas that have the potential to impact the world for the better. Currently Olive Ventures is in an invite-only beta.
Our first project will be a collaboration between Olive Ventures with AL Production, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
AL Production founded by Affan, a university student in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, who invented a low-cost machine that converts plastic to fuel through the pyrolysis process. The Olive team visited Affan on September 2019, during the visit Affan explained about the chemical process that produces fuel.
The inspiration came to him when he recognized how much plastic waste was in Indonesia, while the price of fuel is high for most lower income Indonesians.
Olive Ventures and AL Production will collaborate to undertake an official study seeking to analyze the chemical make up of produced fuel, with the goal of certifying the output for use in Indonesia's vast motorbike market. Once successful, we expect to open a pilot fuel facility to test market adoption. In this store, people can trade plastic waste and receive cheap fuel in return.
