Project Description

Greetings Friends,

Pana LCE (Low Carbon Economy) Investments seeks your help at a critical time for the United States and the world. We are proud to partner with IFundWomen to launch this crowdfunding campaign designed to help us raise capital to deliver on our vision for investing in a low carbon economy.

We are turning to our most valued partners, colleagues and friends to assist in bringing our vision to fruition.  
Specifically, we are asking for your support with the following:

  1. Sharing our campaign and message across your professional and personal networks with everyone for whom you believe our vision might resonate.
  2. Sharing capital contributions that will help us accelerate our growth and our ability to realize our vision, in particular enabling us to:
  • Hire critical staff to accelerate our investments and lending to companies investing in the low carbon economy.  We are a woman-owned business with a diverse staff and look at investment in companies who share our values and create thousands of high - paying jobs in the market.
  • Invest in partnerships with key think tanks at major universities across the globe to continue to innovate and educate on climate-related topics.
  • Offer a Friends & Family investment class to the benefit of our earliest supporters like you!

About Pana LCE:

 I started Pana LCE as a manifestation of my life’s work both professionally as a commodity trader and investor for over 30 years, and personally as a steward of the Earth’s resources.  We’ve proven at Pana that altruism and capitalism are not mutually exclusive.

 We have an unprecedented opportunity to decrease climate volatility.  We’ve all seen it’s effects, including  environmental devastation, trillions of dollars wasted, thousands of lives lost, and a degradation of our way of life.  We can’t wait for governments to be the “fix.”  Investors hold the key to unlocking our future potential.

With this as my inspiration, I started the Pana LCE platform and fund with my own capital and support of my family.  I assembled an investment team of ex colleagues who are the best in the business and started investing in companies that will generate market returns that will have a positive impact on reducing carbon emissions.

We would be honored to share our journey to a low carbon economy with you.  

Warmest Regards,
Caroline
