Grow the Social Value Marketplace

The collective effort of leveraging social value from purchasing has a powerful and positive ripple effect in our communities. By redefining how goods and services are bought and sold, we are taking back control from the invisible hand of capitalism. As we build a social value marketplace, we are unleashing the transformative power of the marketplace – to buy and sell with impact.
