Real Leaders, Big Path Capital, and B Lab have teamed up to assess and rank the “100 Top Impact Companies” of 2019 and Sunrise Banks is one of the inaugural winners!
“We were very impressed with the quality of applicants who were subjected to a rigorous review process for this first-ever 100 Top Impact Companies awards” said Mark Van Ness, Founder, Real Leaders.
The ranking is based on the formula for force – that is mass times acceleration: Three-year growth rate (acceleration) x Revenue (mass) x B Impact assessment score = A Company’s Force for Good score.
“Being named as one of the Top 100 Impact Companies is very humbling,” says Sunrise CEO, David Reiling, “We see ourselves as a social engine for good and are honored to be named alongside these other innovative organizations.”
The 100 winners will be celebrated at a formal event on April 4th and 5th at the Momentum (MO) Summit in Asheville, North Carolina. The MO Summit is an invitation-only event convening with C-suite leaders who are scaling high-growth, positive-impact companies by using the power of creativity for business.
“The Real Leaders 100 list is the first ranking of positive impact companies in North America and leverages the engine of capitalism for great profit and great good,” said Michael Whelchel, Managing Partner, Big Path Capital. “Because of high demand, we are expanding the list globally in 2020,” added Whelchel.
Real Leaders magazine has been in circulation since 2010 and is the world’s first sustainable business & leadership publication. It aims to inspire better leaders for a better world.
Big Path Capital has been called “Impact Investing’s investment bank” and works with the top sustainable and impact companies and funds.
