What does it gives to you?
Groasis B.V. will pay an annual dividend when it makes a profit. As the company grows, the value of the shares will increase. Shares are risk capital, so if the company does not realize its promises, the value may fall. By investing in Groasis, you will help increase the global availability of Growboxxes, help rural families improve their degraded land by planting productive trees in combination with vegetables. You help companies, governments and cities plant trees without using irrigation. When we really carry out large scale ecosystem restoration with our Growboxxes, we can help reduce the CO2 content in the atmosphere.
You can read all about this in the book “The Treesolution” of Groasis founder Pieter Hoff, where he describes his dream about the reforestation of the world and how we can finance it. You can find the book at www.thetreesolution.com.

You can choose between a one-off payment or an automatic collection whereby you pay over a 12 or 24-month period. If you opt for the monthly payment, the monthly amount depends on the value of the shares and on the payment duration. The administration fee is € 250 for all options. The collection fee for a 12-month payment is € 10 extra per month, for the 24-monthly payment, € 25 collection fee will be charged every month.
What is the money that is raised going to be used for?
On 18 October 2016, Minister Henk Kamp (Minister of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands) awarded Groasis as one of the three winners of the title “National Icon of the Netherlands”. This unique award provides additional publicity and support from the Dutch government for the coming years. However, it also gives us a great responsibility: to fulfil what we stand for. We believe that it is now the right time to attract capital and to take great steps in realizing our Mission and Vision.
The share capital is used to boost Groasis’s growth and will be invested in new production equipment to provide a high volume of Growboxx® plant cocoons whilst ensuring a low price. This helps us to meet the demand of (existing and potential) projects for small-scale farmers (focusing on Africa, Latin America and Asia) and other interested parties. The other part of the share capital is used to strengthen the company's financial position and for further development of our products. We believe that Groasis can provide an even better holistic, integrated solution for the reforestation and productivity improvement of degraded land.
