SunFunder unlocks capital for solar projects in emerging markets, where over 2.5 billion people live without access to reliable energy.

Working capital is a key barrier that prevents solar businesses from scaling in emerging markets. SunFunder fills this gap by offering tailored financing solutions to a wide range of solar companies, from product distributors to pay-as-you-go energy service providers.

“Investors’ Circle has been instrumental in helping SunFunder connect with several of our most supportive investors – both equity and debt. We would not be where we are today without this valuable investor network.”
- Ryan Levinson, CEO & Founder of SunFunder
