Impact
With Purpose

“My mission is to inspire, educate & celebrate a congruent life – aligning our values and passions with the businesses we create and the money we invest.”

 “Impact” showcases the power of entrepreneurs who have infused purpose into their businesses by aligning with one or more of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This film profiles entrepreneurs as artists who use their businesses as their canvas; painting their passions, purpose and drive into a profitable venture that has the possibility of improving the world’s challenges. The film weaves together the personal stories of entrepreneurs with the history of impact investing, leaving the audience empowered to take action regardless of whether they start their own business or invest in those changing the world.

Impact investing and purposeful entrepreneurship are not niches. They are part of a worldwide movement that demands changing the world for the better while also increasing wealth and prosperity for all.

Made up of active members of the Bloods, Crips and Growth & Development (formerly Gangster Disciples), TRU Colors is dedicated to changing the perception of gang culture and provide a second chance to make a positive contribution in life.

 

Plastic Bank

By turning plastic waste into currency, the Plastic Bank creates economic opportunity in areas with high levels of poverty and plastic pollution. The Plastic Bank also provides local entrepreneurs with the opportunity to set up and operate a convenience store for the poor, in which plastic waste is the currency. Plastic collected through the Plastic Bank is recycled, reverted back into its raw form, and sold at a premium as Social Plastic®.
