Based in Toronto, Purpose Capital is a company that works with bodies in a variety of sectors -- including government, start-ups and investors -- in order to create social change. The ethos behind the team is to change the way we think about finance, that is, not simply a way to get rich.
It's quite simply in the name; the idea that capital can have a purpose and can attempt to solve social and environmental problems through impact investment. "Our clients think of us as partners who value long-term relationships and co-creative strategies that address the complexities of new and underserved markets," Purpose Capital writes on its website. "Our size and structure allow us to be responsive to market opportunities, and to customize our approach and strategies to service the needs of our clients."
