What We Do

What We Do

Advancing local business and an impact economy is at the heart of our work.

As such, we connect members, decision makers, and the broader business community to advance local business and demonstrate that a thriving impact economy is evolving from possibility to practice.

We Connect

We CONNECT members with each other, as well as decision makers, to exchange learnings and best practices, bond over commonalities, and share ideas for how policies and processes could better support local businesses to grow and thrive.

We Promote

We PROMOTE our members within and outside of our network, as well as the strengths of a local economy and triple bottom line practices.

We Advance

We ADVANCE a triple bottom line economy by advocating on members’ behalf to ensure that sustainably-minded mission-focused independent businesses have a voice on the local, state, and federal level.
