Project Description

Why Via Lucent, Why now?

Imagine a world where single use plastics aren't single use. Imagine a world where our trash enters a closed loop cycle that becomes the raw ingredient for new plastic packaging. Imagine a world where this process creates good, local manufacturing jobs. 

Imagine a world where our buildings generate the water and energy they need to operate. Imagine a world where buildings are refuges. Imagine a world where we grow the devices to capture energy.

There are inventors working on ideas like these today who need help to get to market so we can start living in this world. Contribute today to help us make it a reality.

Who we are

Via Lucent is a climate change broker that identifies the inventions we need to survive climate change and matches them with the resources they need to launch thriving businesses that will have massive impacts on reversing global warming.

The problem we solve

We know that climate change is coming for us and we need to change the way we live in order to continue thriving on Earth. Today there are inventors who have prototypes of the stuff we need to start using right now. We can’t start using it until these things get to market. Today there are investors who want to see these businesses launched may not know where to find them.

How we solve it

Via Lucent solves that problem by identifying the inventors with products and processes that can have a massive impact on reducing global warming and provides the resources to get funding and business expertise to launch thriving businesses. We all need to have access to these things in order to live better and more securely on this planet.

Our customers are the inventors who are ready to see their idea grow and launch as well as the investors who want to fund huge impact companies.

Why Via Lucent?

My superpower is motivating people to step outside of their comfort zone so they can grow. I have been leading people to success for 25 years with a combination of compassion, play, dynamo, and coaching. Our handpicked team has proven expertise in storytelling and marketing. Once we find an inventor who is ready to go, prepare them to find investors by honing their pitch, telling their story, and highlighting the collective value of their work.

How you can help

We need your help to reach a wider audience and are raising $30,000 to produce Via Lucent's story telling tools and establish its legal framework. With your help, we can reach more inventors, prepare more launches, and get the products we need to survive climate change to market.

Thank you for supporting our work.

The Campaign FAQs

What can I do to help?

Right now, Via Lucent needs funding to launch and we warmly welcome financial contributions. We are also always looking for inventors. Who do you know who is working on something that will have a large-scale impact on slowing global warming? Can you please send them our way?
