The Portland Business Journal and Sustainable Business Oregon just released a story featuring Mission Markets and Springboard Innovation. Here is a brief quote from the article:

“The partnership highlights a growing interest in the practice of impact investing among both accredited investors and money managers on Wall Street as well as individuals inspired by the popularity of microfinance programs.

“We’re sort of a LinkedIn platform for investor groups,” said Michael Van Patten, founder and CEO of Mission Markets and a 20-year Wall Street veteran. “We try to provide an infrastructure for accessing capital.”

Mission Markets is working with 85 companies in various stages of approval that the company will attempt to match up with a group of 90-and-growing accredited investors. Mission Markets complies with U.S. Securities and Exchange regulations and uses standards such as the Benefit Corporation certification and the Global Impact Investing Rating System to vet companies.”
