The year 2023 is starting well for United Fund for Belgium. We have signed a new promising partnership with BeeBonds, an alternative financing platform.
This crowdlending platform (in French or in Dutch) directly connects entrepreneurs with investors to finance sustainable and local projects. Founded in 2016 by its CEO Joël Duysan, a professional in the financial and asset management sector, BeeBonds aims to “directly connect the project owner and the investor by proposing local projects, useful projects, projects that are understandable, and in total transparency.”
Since its creation, BeeBonds has been able to finance 60 projects by granting more than €61M to companies. As Joël Duysan explains, they have “developed a model of analysis, file selection and file monitoring with quarterly reporting.”
By investing in projects proposed by BeeBonds, you have a triple impact. In addition to supporting the real economy, BeeBonds is committed to: (i) protecting biodiversity by financing a bee’s hive for each project financed; and (ii) with UFB, supporting concrete social projects aimed at improving the well-being of our beneficiaries.
We are certainly very excited about this partnership. UFB and BeeBonds share the same values of transparency, commitment and valuing meaningful local projects.
As far as BeeBonds is concerned, their crowdlending platform allows “citizens to benefit from a real alternative for their investments and to be able to invest in local, useful and meaningful projects and to participate in the short financing circuit.”
What concerns United Fund for Belgium, we will be able to finance more social projects and improve the well-being of the most vulnerable citizens.
It’s a win-win! For each new investment, BeeBonds will generously donate a portion of its fee to UFB to support our fight against social exclusion.
