We retooled our platform and created something innovative, allowing small businesses for the first time to get instant custom-priced energy contracts on our website.
Instead of selling rack rates that don’t fit their businesses, we can custom design an energy plan to meet their needs. You will encounter ridiculous setbacks and will have to overcome much more than you may have anticipated in order to get a foothold.
And so we have the advantage of being the nimble 'underdog' player in most markets.
We receive hundreds of business ideas every month, often directly via our website. A tiny number are passed to our investment professionals - whole teams of them.

I think we've proved that a branded group of separate businesses, each with limited liability for its own financial affairs, makes sense.
