The idea: to make our region the best place in the country to launch and grow social purpose businesses
We are working to build a strong and supportive ecosystem for people to create and grow businesses that successfully combine financial return and social return. We are focused on encouraging scalable businesses intended to solve social problems, which we call "social purpose businesses."
We recognize that every organization has social impact. What distinguishes social purpose businesses is degree and intent. Making money and solving social problems are both core to their purpose, their strategy and how they measure success.
