SoCap, Here We Come!

Leave a comment

As we pack our bags for SoCap10, we just wanted to give our readers an update on what we expect to get out of the conference by answering a few questions that we were encouraged to answer on the SoCap Community Site.

What are you looking forward to at SoCap10? 

Mission Markets is looking forward to presenting our recently launched, cutting-edge private impact investment exchange to the SoCap community of investors, entrepreneurs and innovators. Our CEO, Mike Van Patten, will be presenting a demo showing exactly how our innovative online marketplace will increase the flow of capital into the impact investing space, which the Monitor Institute predicts will be a $500 billion industry within the next 5 years.

What are you passionate about at the intersection of money and meaning?

The Mission Markets team is passionate about using our unique value proposition to connect buyers and sellers within the currently fragmented impact investing sectors. Most socially and environmentally focused companies and organizations are too small or specialized to access conventional capital markets. Investors seeking to expand their holdings in impact investments are often only aware of a limited number of available opportunities. We address these issues by providing a single destination for consistent, comprehensive financial and impact data on mission-driven companies and organizations seeking to raise capital and we also facilitate the transaction itself.

What do you want to get out of the event? 

We are looking forward to introducing ourselves and our platform to many of the key stakeholders in the space and showing them how we can add value to their sectors.

We can’t wait to tell you how it goes. Stay tuned for more updates from San Francisco!
