Microgenius

Microgenius is a website you can use to make your community share offer much easier.

Providing a platform to finding opportunities to invest in community-based renewable energy projects, Microgenius was the first ever national platform for community share offers to be easily found.  

In 2012 the Community Shares Unit was formed, drawing on experts in community share offers from Co-operatives UK, Locality and backed by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). They liked the idea of Microgenius and how it might help all shares offers, not just renewable energy.  

Now the platform is being operated by the Community Shares Unit, a programme delivered by Co-operatives UK and Locality, who also work with a number of organisations to help spread the word about community shares
