Purpose Evergreen Capital

Purpose Evergreen Capital provides patient, values-aligned capital to enable businesses to transition to steward-ownership. We invest over the long-term, so companies are never forced into a quick sale. Our capital exists to help companies preserve their mission and independence by circumventing conventional exits through steward-ownership.

"If we want a world that is not dominated by profit-at-all-cost entities, we must champion alternative ownership."

Perry Chan, Kickstarter co-founder

WHY WE EXIST

Mature, mission-driven businesses need alternatives.

For mature, successful mission-driven businesses the prospect of private equity, going public, or being owned by a large corporate is often misaligned with the company’s mission values and goals. These businesses need alter- natives to conventional ownership succession that will enable them to stay purpose-driven and independent for the long-term.

HOW WE INVEST

Purpose Evergreen Capital supports businesses to become steward-owned.

We are focused on long-term sustainability, mission-preservation, and corporate independence. In our investments, we leverage alternative financing solutions to buy-out early or non-aligned investors as well as finance successions to make it possible for companies to become steward-owned and to grow and succeed over the long-term.
