SELECTION CRITERIA

Under no circumstances does WE DO GOOD advise investors on the investment or give any opinion on the chances of a project’s success. WE DO GOOD is not an investment advisor.

In general, the projects presented must comply with the general conditions of use of the platform and more specifically the specific conditions applicable. This page outlines some of these criteria and other elements of assessment taken into account.

CRITERIA RELATED TO THE STRUCTURE THAT CARRIES THE PROJECT

The Project Owner must:

send the information and documents to authenticate his identity and that of his company to our payment service provider Lemon Way

commit to the veracity of the information and documents provided

not be subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, moratorium, controlled management, suspension of payment or judicial liquidation proceedings.

PROJECT ECONOMIC CRITERIA

The Project must:

Have a complete business plan, presenting the team that carries the project, the company, its strategy, with a detailed financial forecast for at least 3 years, as well as a financing plan; we check the presence of these elements but not the relevance of the strategy or their coherence vis-à-vis the market

Societal Impact Project

For all the projects presented on the platform, the WE DO GOOD impact committee analyzes their positive impacts and validates or not the attribution of economic, social or environmental impact badges.

Projects with an environmental impact can also apply for the Crowdfunding for Green Growth label, by fulfilling a criteria grid defined by the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition.

At the top of each project’s presentation, you can identify its positive impacts by the badges assigned to it. Similarly, the label awarded by the Department is identifiable at the beginning of the pitch.

CONDITIONS FOR OBTAINING FUNDS

Then, ahead of the investment phase, the project goes through an evaluation phase open to the public, during which Internet users can express their opinion and ask questions of the project owner. Comments can be published publicly, depending on the evaluator’s choice, and can be seen at the bottom of the project presentation page to connected users.

The evaluators express themselves on the risk of the project, assigning it a score of 1 (very low) to 5 (very high) and this data is then displayed on the “Financial Data” portion of the project.

At the end of the fundraising,

have structured their project with the manager working full time in the company

the accounts must be kept by a third-party accountant and the annual accounts sent to WE DO GOOD
