The Rise of Do-Gooder Finance

I am extremely excited about the September issue of BC Business Magazine which features an article entitled “Prophet Motives.”  The article begins with an excellent profile of Renewal investee, David Van Seters, founder of SPUD and continues on to give an overview of the Renewal Story, including many of our partners over the years.  I invite you to grab a cup of coffee, Salt Spring preferably, and check out the full article here.

David’s Story

David Van Seter’s “small potatoes” perspective of the triple bottom line endured a harsh reality check at the school of hard knocks. A successful business consultant, David wanted to inspire his clients with a demonstration of sustainable business practices. He created SPUD, Sustainable Produce Urban Delivery (originally Small Potatoes Urban Delivery)—a web-based grocery delivery business, promoting organic, local and informed food choices.
