ABOUT: Too often our vision for a better world seems at odds with the work that puts bread on the table. Is it really possible to have both?

Launched in 2011 for the purpose of accelerating social innovation through a new form of capitalism, COMMON exists to unify social businesses through shared purpose, shared goals, shared means, and shared values.
By coming together as a community, instead of remaining purely independent — social businesses gain incalculable strength in numbers. That alone creates tremendous value in unprecedented ways, but more importantly it represents the power to offset market dynamics that have rendered the majority of social businesses small, under-resourced and vulnerable to rapidly changing conditions.
The COMMON community spans 21 countries and 27 industries and includes first time solo entrepreneurs and large corporations . Together we accelerate each other's business, leveraging COMMON's unique approach to building, launching and promoting ideas that take care of the planet and all the creatures on it.
