Point Positive member investors, Rich Shapiro and Lindy Ellis, in Ken Visser's lab at Clarkson University. Ken is the founder of Ducted Wind Turbines.

Point Positive investors care deeply about the Adirondacks and are part of a select group of seasoned business leaders with tremendous expertise and networks dedicated to building opportunity and inspiring innovation through shared due diligence and smart investing.

The group meets with vetted entrepreneurs for pitch sessions throughout the year. Decisions to invest or not are up to the participants and the time commitment is tailored to preference – members can lead, mentor, advise, or just monitor, and invest on an individual basis in fully vetted, promising ventures across multiple industry sectors.

Investors donate a fixed annual amount to the Point Positive Fund that supports the work the organization provides to emerging entrepreneurs. Investments committed to entrepreneurs brought to them through Point Positive are also assessed at a modest percentage of their investment.

Our members are active investors - who contribute their time and experience, as well as offer introductions to valuable contacts essential to a funded company's success.
