CoPeace Will Provide Fractional C-Suite Services to the third half with the Intent of Making a Future Equity Investment

DENVER (June 16, 2023) – CoPeace, a public benefit corporation and impact investment company that supports companies through investment and support services, and the third half, the world’s first public benefit corporation to combine travel, soccer and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, announced a strategic partnership today to use the power of sports to tackle social issues and improve lives.

CoPeace will be providing the third half with a variety of fractional and interim CEO/COO/CFO/CMO services, as needed. In addition, CoPeace will retain an option to make an equity investment in the third half during the one-year term of the initial partnership agreement.

“We have been wanting to work with the third half team for a long time,” said Craig Jonas, CoPeace CEO. “Our missions and backgrounds are completely aligned – you can’t help but experience life-changing impact when young athletes are immersed in each other’s culture. Our intention to work together with the third half as part of CoPeace Sport, for the long haul.”

The executive support and services CoPeace will dedicate to this partnership are intended to fill current gaps in the third half organizational structure in order to facilitate growth in an efficient and sustainable manner.

“There’s never been a more exciting time to bring together the universal appeal of sport with the transformative power of travel,” said Mike Geddes, third half CEO. “As demand for travel – and especially meaningful, impactful travel – is coming back strong, we’re excited to be working with CoPeace to bring the third half to adventurers who want to experience the unique power of the global game.
