Mission Aligned Growth SALON SERIES

Join a select group of founders, CEOs, investors and thought leaders for our 2020-2021 Mission Aligned Growth Salon Series, a curated collection of conversation and connection points for the mission aligned business community. Salon Series topics  explore the promise and complexity for mission-aligned businesses (for profit businesses with a purpose beyond profit) navigating emerging growth capital markets.

If you are interested in learning the latest trends in sectors with strong mission aligned activity, the latest developments in conscious cultures, meet investors for your next stage of growth or companies for your next investment, or want to compare notes with peers about some of the unique challenges in finding alignment at early and emerging growth stages of development, our MAGS Salon Series is designed for you.

Upcoming Events:

TransTech Conference – we are hosting a conversation about the exploding intersection between human wellbeing and the tech industry

Other Salon Series events to be announced shortly

Venue: Small invitation-only online events

Host: Gary Moon





With Mission Aligned Growth Summit, we aim to curate a learning community interested in topics at the intersection of purpose-driven business and transactional corporate finance. Our partners embrace Mission-aligned and Conscious principles. If you are interested in joining us on this journey, please get in touch.

What to


Attendees will include a balance of early stage and later stage companies, venture and private equity investors, plus select family offices and foundations actively investing on this strategy.

Great Speakers

Past speakers have included mission-aligned CEOs including Chad Dickerson, former CEO from Etsy, leading investors including Sunny Vanderbeck (Satori Capital), Scott Wu (Omidyar) and Ira Ehrenpreis (DBL Partners) and industry leaders including Meghan French Dunbar from Conscious Company Media.

Healthy Debate

Our previous summit included thoughtful panels highlighting different perspectives on balancing mission and returns, and the art (and science) of focusing on both simultaneously. Speakers dove into challenging issues such as conscious M&A and strategies for measuring how well mission-aligned businesses manage to stick to their missions. We also discussed investment challenges including managing a cap table with investors that have different priorities, and family offices and foundations as a source of capital.


There will be ample networking opportunities to connect and engage with others who share your passion for building businesses that prioritize cultures of passion, personal growth and professional fulfillment, but also realize that financial success is the engine that enables this worldview to have greater impact.



Learn from our posts and conversations around thinking critically about the ins and outs of prioritizing both profits and purpose.
