About Capital Missions Company
Welcome to Capital Missions.com (CMC), the company that joy built to serve the shift to sustainability. CMC is now in the grateful position of gifting a better, faster, cheaper and more fun innovation method freely to the world to manifest sustainability. Thanks to the remarkable work of hundreds of inspiring leaders of sustainability over the last 35 years who have designed, tested and proven this method, CMC freely shares the ‘how-to’ for KINS Innovation Networks. KINS are self-organizing networks of key, collaborative, high-integrity leaders from widely diverse fields who come together by invitation to achieve inspiring innovations while enjoying their kindred spirits. “KINS” signifies that ‘we are all one.’
You are also welcome to download the book that tells this story in detail, The Trojan Horse of Love. The author, CMC president Susan Davis, gifts it from her heart to others and asks them to gift it widely to help spread this innovation method.
CMC is an unusual for-profit company, operating for the joy of very high social impact over the last 21 years rather than for maximizing profitability, as described in the free book above. CMC practices bio-mimicry, imitating nature, which replicates. For example, DNA replicates while cancer grows and kills. What CMC replicates are KINS Innovation Networks of investors, business leaders, philanthropists, social activists and local green leaders to catalyze a globally sustainable economy.
CMC president Susan Davis has had the joy of serving as a founding organizer for the 20 KINS Innovation Networks, including those for sustainability leaders solar leaders, angel investors, institutional investors, Nigerian village women, social venture capitalists, leading socially-responsible CEOs, families with wealth of $100 million plus, leading women business owners, leading finance executives, Chicago women leaders.
Founded in 1990, CMC was one of the first “B” Corporations, operating ‘to benefit society.’ While operating on a tiny budget, Capital Missions has had social impact in the billions of dollars. For example, one network alone, The Investors’ Circle, has seen its members invest more than $134 million in more than 200 socially-responsible ventures, with follow-on capital of $2.2 billion. The crucial factor in the success of the KINS networks are their love-based operating principles here.
In 2007, a health collapse led Susan to recuperate in Vilcabamba, Ecuador, where she created a KINS network pro bono in collaboration with Marion Rockefeller Weber’s FlowFunding.org. This network was inspired by the Tipping Point Network, to create a whole systems approach for sustainability. It’s success inspired Susan and her husband, biodynamic farmer Walter Moora, to take this model to U.S. towns seeking to go green, still working pro bono. Visiting 12 U.S. towns in 2010 as global nomads, they inspired the self-organizing of 10 KINS Innovation Networks, with all parties working pro bono. Today Susan and Walter continue their advisory work and CMC has transitioned from a “C” Corporation to a sole proprietorship under Susan.
