ecoVC is a nonprofit organization that connects businesses in a network for collective action. With a free online platform, ecoVC enables small and early stage companies to build sustainable businesses at a key phase of development and empowers them to become corporate sustainability leaders. By promoting sustainable business practices – operating activities addressing environmental concerns while supporting business objectives – ecoVC delivers both environmental and economic returns.
ecoVC offers startups and small companies a new way to shape their businesses while addressing environmental issues. Although startups are renowned for sparking innovation, they are also poised to set a compelling environmental precedent by adopting sustainable business practices vital to financial success.
ecoVC provides startups and small companies the tools necessary to implement sustainable business practices from the outset, when they are easier and cheaper to integrate into operations, rather than at later stages of development and growth. These practices are not only good for the environment, but also increasingly paramount to business survival.
ecoVC advocates sustainable business practices that help startups and small companies realize economic gains while spurring environmental innovation. These practices drive capital efficiency, enable businesses to attract and retain talent, boost branding and achieve market dominance, together enhancing the health and value of a company.
ecoVC expands the role startups and small companies play in driving a sustainable global economy by providing an essential tool to build efficient, valuable businesses. Our vision is to maximize positive environmental impact and economic returns by encouraging sustainable practices at the earliest stages of business and growth.
