We are delighted to announce that the Foundation's founding company, Milestone Group PLC, has been admitted to the Social Stock Exchange. This is an important stage in its vision to generate shareholder value by using media and technology to create products and services that help create a positive social impact.
The Social Stock Exchange provides access to the world's first regulated exchange dedicated to businesses and investors seeking to achieve a positive social and environmental impact through their activities. Its mission is to create an efficient, universally accessible buyers' and sellers' public marketplace where investors and businesses of all sizes can achieve greater impact either through capital allocation or capital raising.
The Social Stock Exchange's global audience offers Milestone, the Foundation and its partners an exciting platform from which to promote its methodology and initiatives. This is set to include the white labelling of Nexstar for its latest initiative entitled alchemy, as well as increased exposure for the Company's flagship product, the Passion Project, and Disorder Magazine.
The increased exposure created by the Social Stock Exchange admission will provide the Foundation greater impetus with which to use in its efforts to educate and empower young people to build a better future for themselves and others.
Deborah White, a trustee of the Foundation, said of the news, “This is an important part of the Company's development and is key in delivering upon our mission to ‘make a profit and make a difference’.”
