I recently joined the Mission Markets team as the Director of Climate Change Markets.  What does that mean?  As with any position or title, the person grows with the role and the role is plied as the person grows.  For now, it seems my role is to oversee many aspects of the environmental side of the Mission Markets platforms.

Did you know that Mission Markets incorporates more than traditional impact investment?  More than your typical (if anything truly is typical) microfinance opportunity?  Mission Markets is actually a financial services firm leveraging technology and cloud computing to provide solutions to the sustainable market and community.  I bet you didn't know that.

Mission Markets has developed three unique, secure transaction platforms that, when combined, create a holistic and expansive sustainable marketplace for discerning buyers and sellers in search of opportunities throughout the impact, environmental, and socially responsible sectors.  So, "yes, Virginia. . ." (forget about Santa) "sustainability" incorporates the impact, environmental, and socially responsible sectors.  That's why I'm here; because of the environmental side of sustainability.  I'm also here because I believe in what we're doing at Mission Markets; that is, providing stakeholders in this sustainable community with tools enabling them to execute.
