About B Revolution Capital
Building the B Revolution through early-stage capital for B Corporations
B Revolution Capital is a non-profit association for angel investors interested in investing in early-stage B Corporations. B Corporations harness the power of business to solve social or environmental problems.
B Revolution Capital focuses on early-stage, high-growth-potential B Corporations with an investment need of between $50,000 and $1 million. With the support of its members and sponsors, the association hosts educational fora, pitch and business plan competitions, and monthly member meetings in order to provide investors with access to first-class knowledge and investment opportunities.
Our members make individual investment decisions using their personal funds. While B Revolution Capital provides no advisory services or recommendations, the association offers its members the opportunity to be a part of the B Revolution by supporting and mentoring startup B Corps through angel investments. B Revolution Capital’s leadership selects applicants to present their ventures at the monthly meetings, and provides a community through which investors can collaborate on due diligence and investment syndication.
B Corporations: A Movement of Best Practices for the 21st Century
The B Corporation certification is a third-party certification that looks comprehensively at the entire business, including governance, supply chain, employees, civic engagement, business policies and processes, and social and environmental impacts, not just product attributes (e.g. Organic, Fair Trade, or LEED). By looking at over 140 points of analysis within each business, B Corporation certification identifies those businesses which achieve sustainable impacts, and scores their performance on a scale of 200. Well-known B Corporations include Patagonia, Seventh Generation, Etsy, ShoreBank, and Method.
In the past four years, over 600 businesses have become B Corporation-certified, and over 1,000 have started using the B Corporation impact assessment tool. Meanwhile, legislation supporting B Corporations has been passed in 11 states in just three years, evidencing widespread and often-unanimous legislative support.
