Welcome to the future of activist investing. With investment, your capital is at risk.

Investing can be a great way to make your money work for you and grow wealth.

However, we feel that there’s an unfortunate lack of transparency and awareness about what your money is really supporting.

This can make it difficult to invest in line with your values.

But what if you could combine causes you believe in with activism and investing? That’s exactly what Tulipshare does.

This stock trading platform campaigns for change in some of the biggest companies in the world - all through investing.

Through Tulipshare, you can become an activist investor in campaigns you believe in for as little as £1.

Here’s how to buy shares to affect change in a company with Tulipshare.

How to buy shares in a company and use them for change

For many people, buying shares is not often associated with progressive change. However, Tulipshare does investing a little differently.

Tulipshare’’s activist investing ethos helps those committed to progressive change to invest in company stocks and leverage shareholder rights to make their voices heard.

But how exactly do you buy shares and use them for change?

What is activist investing?

First things first, let’s go a little deeper into what activist investing is.

Activist investing is a type of ethical investment where money is invested into publicly traded companies to influence how the companies are run.

Activist investing is nothing new.

But Tulipshare makes activist investing more accessible to retail investors, allowing you and other like-minded investors to buy shares in the companies targeted in ESG-focused campaigns on Tulipshare’s platform.

By doing this, Tulipshare can unify individual voices into a collective movement around a common goal, giving us a seat at the table to advocate for meaningful changes to company policy.

What impact can you have?

When buying shares individually, your impact as an activist can be limited, but when you buy shares on Tulipshare they are able to amplify our collective voice to campaign for change.

Here are just a few examples of the campaigns Tulipshare has been running so far:


Every year the world throws away around 53 million tonnes of electronic waste.

One of Tulipshare’s longest-running campaigns is to push Apple to adopt a fair and accessible Right to Repair policy that allows for and encourages customers to keep their devices and repair them.

With over $40,000 invested in Tulipshare’s Apple campaign, Tulipshare now has enough shares to submit a shareholder proposal next year.

Meanwhile, Apple has recently released their first ever Self Service Repair Program, but Tulipshare has identified gaps within the new program that still need to be addressed.

Tulipshare is currently in conversations with Apple’s IR team and plan to continue to engage and press for further improvements to its repair service.

Tulipshare’s activist investment campaign is attempting to ensure safe and fair working conditions for Amazon warehouse workers.

With over $10,000 invested and over 2,600 people interested, Tulipshare is well on the way to advocating for Amazon warehouse workers on your behalf.
