World Business Meeting with Growth Concept_edited.jpg

Cornerstone Ventures LLC helps organizations find ways to become profitable and socially responsible. 


Experienced advisory teams show clients how social enterprise business models and impact investment tools can meet triple bottom line goals for people, planet and profit.  We offer suggestions about innovative solutions that can lead to self-supporting and sometimes lucrative projects, programs and businesses. 


When engaged, we provide assistance in the form of consultations, capacity building and strategic planning that results in new jobs, needed goods and services, and environment preservation or restoration.  Much of our guidance is based on decades of leadership experience in community development, poverty alleviation and economic development work that our associates have accumulated.  Initiatives we have led or organized have resulted in increased tax revenues, new or revitalized services and programs, and improvements for which people and communities are proud.
