I realized Michael Van Patten was following me after the third conference. 

Social Venture Network, Slow Money Gathering, and SRI In The Rockies are all conferences I have attended for quite some time.  The beauty of these conferences is the opportunity to network with like-minded members of our community.  Michael is the founder and president of Mission Markets, and we soon sat down together to learn more about each other’s business.

My job here at Mission Markets gives me the unique opportunity to be inspired on a daily basis.  I am in charge of Member Services -- that means I assist companies seeking capital that demonstrate a social or environmental mission to list their offering on our platform.  Aside from providing these groups with the listing requirements, walking them through our platform, and encouraging their patience with our website, I have the privilege of learning about these different companies and the great work they are doing in the social and environmental space.
