Our
Mission

Our mission is to amplify social impact by elevating the profile of Social-Forward Companies in public markets.

We believe that in conjunction with traditional methods of value creation, businesses can incrementally increase economic value by intentionally pursuing social impact and generating positive outcomes for their stakeholders.

Our Mission

As such, we are seeking partnership with those companies actively or intending to become meaningfully aligned with UN SDGs Three, Four, Eight and Ten in their business models, leadership, investment in employees or commitment to community.

We intend to achieve our mission by identifying and investing in a target that drives an increase of attention and equity capital towards this company specifically and similar companies in general.

Our Mission
Our aim is to become a model for other corporate leaders regarding how to capitalize on opportunities to create social good and financial progress.
