A Note From Adrianne Gordon, Big Path Capital COO

We are ending this March on a high and hopeful note at Big Path Capital thanks to our recent opportunity to be in community — in person! — with fellow Certified B Corporations. At this month’s gathering of U.S. and Canadian B Corps in Vancouver, Michael and I connected with fellow purpose-driven business leaders during formal sessions and informal conversations.

It’s only appropriate that the gathering happened during B Corp Month. Big Path Capital is proud to be one of the first B Corps, certifying more than 15 years ago. Since then, the U.S. and Canadian B Corp community has grown to more than 2,500 companies! While so much has changed, one unifying thing has stayed the same: Making business a force for good.

The B Corp community has provided so much value to our business and mission during that time. The support, resources, relationships, and ideas from other like-minded businesses have been an incredible return on our investment to achieve and maintain Big Path’s B Corp certification.

Doing business differently, for the good of people and the planet, is often inspiring and sometimes challenging. I’m grateful to be on the journey toward better business with other leaders like you who are willing to weather the challenges, share lessons and best practices, and make time to truly connect — with people and our beautiful planet.

Thank you for joining us on this journey toward a sustainable economy that works for all.





Redefining Business Success with the B Corp Community

With a mission to connect impact companies and funds with values-aligned investors, Big Path Capital has social and environmental impact improvement as its core.
