Carl’s transition from sponsor to partner was natural in light of our mutual interests. Over the course of the BTP event, he shared his expertise with members and other investors at a workshop that IC facilitated on alternative structures of impact deals. He also spent time with the IC community at a member reception the evening before the pitch event and watched a documentary co-produced by a founding IC member. On pitch day, he shared his legal insights and advice with a diverse set of social entrepreneurs who were seeking advice as they considered how to scale their businesses with new funding from IC members.
Morgan Lewis – and many others – realize that this work is worthwhile and profitable. IC is fortunate to have several partners that are equally supportive of our work around the country – Moye White’s Dominck Sekich in Colorado, Jonathan Storper at Hanson Bridgett in San Francisco, and Fred Hutchison of Hutchison Law in Raleigh-Durham – to name just a few.
IC partners realize that working with impact companies is not only an energizing addition to their usual work, but that it can be profitable and that it’s always worthwhile. They share IC’s vision and realize that a partnership of this sort puts them on the same side of the table as some of the most creative, passionate, and driven people in the world.
At Investors’ Circle, we believes that:
Business matters. Capitalism can - and should - be a force for good.
Risk-taking matters. Entrepreneurs and investors (and partners!) that take a chance change the world.
Relationships matter. Impact investing is greater than the sum of its parts.
Integrity matters. Be, don’t seem.
Fun matters. The Seven Dwarves were right…
If you do, too – join IC and Carl and our other partners, and come on board. Start the conversation with me here.
