In 2013, Real Pickles became the first sole proprietorship in the country to transition to a worker-owned cooperative using a direct public offering. They offered non-voting shares with lower-than-market-rate financial returns, in exchange for triple bottom line returns. It was a bold move, but they sold out in less than two months: it turned out that investors were hungry for the opportunity to make a local, triple-bottom-line investment.
In the keynote for the 2016 BuildingEnergy Bottom Lines Business Summit, company founders Dan Rosenberg and Addie Rose Holland will share their real-world experiences reporting on triple bottom line returns to investors, and launch us into the day's focus on the "People" arm of the triple bottom line by inspiring us with some of the metrics they track and work they've done on this front of their business.
