CoPeace PBC Announces New Sports Board

Denver, CO CoPeace PBC continues to expand its reach, and we are thrilled to announce our venture into impact investing within the sports industry through CoPeace Sport PB LLC with the formation of its new CoPeace Sports Board. 

With a team and foundation deeply rooted in sports, including CEO and Founder, Craig Jonas‘s extensive background as an entrepreneur and executive across various sports sectors, we are uniquely positioned to bring impactful investment opportunities to the sports world. Adding to our team, we welcome Kelsey Sloan as Managing Director, whose expertise in athlete management and sport business development, combined with her MBA background, strengthens our ability to grow CoPeace’s investment opportunities for stakeholders in the sports industry.

At CoPeace, we firmly believe that doing well goes hand in hand with doing good. Our commitment to investing in companies that positively impact society and the environment is not only ethically sound but also financially savvy, and the sports world is ready to engage with that opportunity. As we continue to support socially and environmentally impactful companies, we are focusing on additional cash flow support from our investors, and using our backgrounds working in the inner world of sports to bring this investment opportunity to stakeholders in the sports industry. As Nelson Mandela said, “Sport has the power to change the world” and CoPeace is here to harness business to help catalyze the change. 

While our crowdfunding campaign makes it easier for everyone to invest, our accredited investor platform simplifies participation for accredited investors, including the necessary documentation such as the PPM, investor verification, and funds transfer. 

We invite you to review our sports deck for more information and welcome any feedback, questions, or follow-ups you may have. For those attending the Final Four Tournament in Phoenix or Cleveland, we welcome the opportunity to meet in person. Additionally, we are happy to schedule another virtual introductory call or follow-up at your convenience.

Together, let’s #growyourmoneyforgood.

CoPeace is the lead partner for the NABC Service and Advocacy Awards at the 2024 Guardians of the Game Ceremony at the Men’s Basketball Final Four

Phoenix, AZ – CoPeace PBC proudly announces its continued collaboration with the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and extends its heartfelt congratulations to the recipients of the 2024 NABC Guardians of the Game awards. These awards, presented annually at the NABC Convention, honor individuals who embody values of leadership, service, education, advocacy, and inclusion within the basketball community.

The 2024 NABC Guardians of the Game awardees are:

  • Leadership: Baylor coach Scott Drew
  • Service Presented by CoPeace PBC: Former Kenyon, Hendrix, and Ohio Dominican head coach Dan Priest
  • Advocacy Presented by CoPeace PBC: Former Missouri coach Norm Stewart
  • Education: Dayton coach Anthony Grant
  • Inclusion: Saguaro High School coach Lucas Ramirez

“Coaching transcends the boundaries of the court, impacting lives and communities far beyond the game,” stated Craig Jonas, Founder and CEO of CoPeace PBC. “We are honored to continue our support of the NABC Guardians of the Game awards, and specifically, to present the Service and Advocacy awards to these remarkable individuals.”

Dan Priest, with an illustrious coaching career spanning 24 seasons across Ohio Dominican, Hendrix, and Kenyon, boasts the highest career-winning percentages at both Ohio Dominican and Hendrix during their time in Division III. Renowned for his leadership, Priest has actively participated in various committees, pioneering the engagement of Division III coaches in national issues. Notably, during his tenure at Kenyon, Priest contributed significantly to the NABC Division III Congress and the NABC Division III All-Star Game Committee.

Norm Stewart, the renowned coach at Missouri, achieved remarkable success during his tenure, including 634 wins over 32 seasons and eight Big Eight regular season championships. After facing a colon cancer diagnosis, Stewart collaborated with the NABC and the American Cancer Society in 1993 to establish the Coaches vs. Cancer program. This initiative, now in its 30th season, has raised over $155 million to support critical cancer research and patient care efforts.

“At CoPeace PBC, we believe in the power of sports to drive positive change,” added Jonas. “We commend these Guardians of the Game for their unwavering commitment to excellence, integrity, and social impact. We are excited to add an award to the women’s final four next year.”

CoPeace PBC remains committed to its mission of supporting impactful initiatives and organizations that contribute to a more sustainable and equitable world.
