Certified B Corporation Renewal Funds is a Canadian social venture fund. The Social Business editorial team came across a very interesting and crucial quote by Joel Soloman, the Chairman of Renewal in Forbes. "Money tends to corrupt; few people can handle large amounts of money without being corrupted by it," they wrote. "'Love,' he says, 'is the real currency' for social change."
That's a very powerful claim that could be taken for granted but it seems as though Renewal Funds takes this into consideration in its approach to social and environmental change. And that also makes big business: Renewal based in Vancouver, British Columbia has over $80 million under management.
