Capital has the power to change the world…

Capital is a tool and is used for good and for bad. The difference is the goal and the motives behind the capital. Imagine what would happen if we filled the gap between purely profit and purely charity. It would create another vision of success and undoubtingly would unleash creativity and innovation totally untapped.

Business/Investment is the vehicle to deliver this change

The idea that a business’s sole purpose is for profit is being challenged. While profit is necessary and good, a business serves more stakeholders than just stockholders. Employees, service providers, the environment, communities, and shareholders are all impacted by how businesses are run. In addition, the mission and what the business produces (product or service) also impact these stakeholders. Increasingly business leaders are looking for capital and capital providers who take this holistic approach.
