Hardcoding Positive Social Purpose Into New & Existing Business Models

Mark Grimes June 24, 2022

Dave Dahl, co-founder Dave’s Killer Bread (sold 2015) and Mark Grimes, co-founder NedSpace (sold 2021) will explore existing and new positive social change business models and ways to build open, transparent and meaningful metrics and focus on results and outcomes to help make a better world. The business of positive social change as it directly impacts revenue growth, an upward spiral of making good things happen, if you will. They will discuss the meaning of supporting causes founders believe in, rather than trying to fit a market—the power of sincerity.

Purpose and Desired Outcome

Encourage new & existing businesses to build transparent positive social change into as many stages of their business process as possible. We'd like founders and entrepreneurs to understand building in "good at every stage", from materials to staff, distribution to marketing, customers to revenue (in other words, doing the right thing at every stage).
