2021 NABC Sponsorship

CoPeace Announces Sponsorship of NABC Service and Advocacy Awards at NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship

CoPeace Announces Sponsorship of NABC Service and Advocacy Awards at NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship

March 25, 2021


CoPeace Will Also Sponsor NABC Coaches Clinic Honoring Black Coaching Pioneer John McLendon

DENVER CoPeace, a diversified holding company that invests in growing companies demonstrating positive measurable impact and strong fiscal health, announced today a presenting sponsorship of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Guardians of the Game Awards for Advocacy & Service. CoPeace will also be a sponsor of the “John McLendon – Transforming Challenges Into Opportunities” coaches clinic. Both events will take place during the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship in Indianapolis the week of March 29-April 2.

The Guardians of the Game is a national awareness and education program of the NABC. The goal of the program is to focus attention on the positive aspects of basketball and the important role coaches play in the lives of student-athletes as well as positively impacting their communities.

The sponsorship is an ideal fit for CoPeace, which has launched a “sport for good” initiative that helps coaches, athletes and sports organizations utilize their platforms and maximize their ability to positively impact society. For coaches in particular, CoPeace’s impact measurement and business development services can help align their personal values with sustainable impact opportunities, while boosting their brand equity in the process.

“Nelson Mandela said, ‘Sport has the power to change the world,’ and I fully agree,” said CoPeace CEO Craig Jonas. “As a former college head basketball coach, and long-time sports executive, I believe coaches deeply affect the lives of young people, as well as the wider communities in which they serve. To have the opportunity to be associated with the NABC and these outstanding honorees is a no-brainer for us at CoPeace as we work to make our world a better place through the business of sport.”

Similarly, the NABC sees the partnership with CoPeace as representing another positive opportunity for its membership to effectively impact society. The NABC has long encouraged basketball coaches to serve the greater community in ways that elevate moral, ethical and educational values.

“The NABC is excited to evolve our relationship with CoPeace, with whom we share many common core values,” said Craig Robinson, NABC Executive Director. “This partnership will enhance the NABC Convention and the NABC Guardians of the Game Awards program, and in doing so, further elevate coaches who make a difference on and off the court.”

The John McLendon clinic “Transforming Challenges Into Opportunities,” presented by CoPeace and led by Jerry Krause and Ralph Pim, is especially pertinent in 2021, following a year in which everyone has faced personal and professional challenges. McLendon, who was a student of Dr. James Naismith at the University of Kansas, is the first college coach in history to win three consecutive national championships.  He was a basketball innovator, ambassador for the game and a pioneer in integrating the sport of basketball.

After having passionately led the push for increased voting education and civic engagement among coaches and players leading up to the 2020 election, Georgia Tech’s associate head coach Eric Reveno was named the winner of the NABC Guardians of Game Award for Service, presented by CoPeace. Reveno was the driving force behind the NCAA’s new rule establishing federal Election Day as a required day off from practice and competition for NCAA teams in all sports.

Moreover, Reveno’s tireless efforts were also a key factor in the establishment of the Coaches’ Voter Engagement Pledge, which encouraged sports programs to publicly commit to registering 100 percent of their eligible student-athletes. Over 1000 college basketball coaches took the pledge, which directly impacted 8,000 student-athletes.

“I’ve always been excited about building championship teams,” said Reveno, “For me, something clicked that night (of our team meeting) that we’re all one big team. Our democracy is dependent on us being great teammates. In hindsight, I’m extremely satisfied that we were able to create something that moved the needle.”

The winner of the NABC Guardians of the Game Award for Advocacy sponsored by CoPeace is University of Colorado head coach Tad Boyle. Boyle has long been committed to making the game of college basketball as good as it can be. He has served in an exemplary manner as the Pac-12’s congressman for the NCAA and most recently as the chair of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Rules Committee.

“I’ve been working with the Rules Committee a long time and we have had a number of coaches who have been strong leaders as the chair. Tad Boyle is one of the best,” said NCAA Men’s Basketball Secretary-Rules Editor Art Hyland.

CoPeace Announces Filing of CF Raise to Continue Capital Raise

March 18, 2021


Following successful earlier rounds in which it raised $1.9 million, impact holding company seeks to raise additional $5 million from investors interested in growing money through investments in positive-impact companies

DENVER CoPeace, a diversified holding company which invests in growing companies demonstrating positive measurable impact and strong fiscal health, today announced it has launched a Regulation CF equity crowdfunding offering following the validation of its Form C by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The purpose of this filing is to secure funds through investments from investors in the holding company, which directly invests in for-profit companies seeking solutions to societal and environmental problems, while striving for a competitive financial return.

CoPeace’s Regulation CF equity crowdfunding offering allows the company to sell up to $5 million worth of shares to the public. Shares are priced at $130.00 USD each with a minimum investment of $520 (4 shares). The offering will be conducted on a best efforts basis through the Wefunder Portal, https://wefunder.com/copeace.

As a holding company, CoPeace utilizes investor capital to purchase controlling interest in complementary, purpose-driven subsidiaries with innovative, marketable concepts and a strong leadership team, who are combating world problems with measurable impact and are projected to have positive growth and potential target returns. Currently, CoPeace’s portfolio includes five companies, Advanced Sustainable Technologies, Uncharted Power, CoFi PBLLC, CoMa PBLLC and CoSpo PBLLC, all of which focus on climate crisis solutions, cleantech innovation, economic equality and social justice.

There is tremendous opportunity for CoPeace’s investing model with the continued surge of assets managed with an environmental, social and/or governance lens. Recent research shows total U.S.-domiciled sustainably invested assets under management, both institutional and retail, grew 42% between 2018 and 2020, climbing from $12 trillion to $17.1 trillion.

CoPeace has already raised over $1.9M through previous rounds to facilitate investments in socially-impactful organizations and acquire meaningful subsidiaries, as well as contribute to general operating costs. Capital raised through the CF offering will further support CoPeace’s current portfolio, while helping expand their holdings to include themes of public health, education, and financial accessibility.

“We’ve received tremendous support on our fundraising journey thus far,” CoPeace CEO Craig Jonas said. “And we look forward to this next chapter to continue changing the structure of global capitalism in a way that places the environment and society on equal footing with profits.”

CoPeace Launches V.I.B.E.™, Measures Athletes’ Positive Impact on Society

March 18, 2021


New tool enables athletes, brands, and marketers to measure brand equity derived from ESG impact combined with media reach 

DENVER CoPeace, a diversified holding company which invests in growing companies demonstrating positive measurable impact and strong fiscal health, today announced the availability of V.I.B.E.™ (Valuation of Impact Brand Equity), a proprietary tool designed to place a relative-value score on an athlete’s positive impact on society.

VIBE™ scores are based on publicly available information regarding an athlete’s socio-cultural and environmental impact on society, such as impact activities on global/societal issues, philanthropic work, endorsements, athlete-produced content via traditional and social media and more.

“We have analyzed over 2.4 billion data points through publicly available information covering athletes’ social media usage, contracts, and impact work,” said Ed Tepper, COO of CoPeace. “Our machine learning models process this massive amount of data, develop an association between athletes and ESG (environment, social, governance) categories, as well as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGSs), to accurately measure the athletes’ impact, and from there, calculate a standardized score for each.”

It’s important to note that the scores reflect the association between athletes and impact, and they do not specifically measure actual impact. The first iteration of VIBE analyzed the most impactful NBA stars, finding that Brooklyn Nets stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving rank highest among their scoring criteria with scores of 70 and 67.9 respectively. Draymond Green, Russell Westbrook and LeBron James round out the top five, all with scores hovering around 66.

In addition to helping athletes, brands and marketers gauge their positive impact on society, there’s a consulting arm of the VIBE tool that can help improve scores through increasing scale and scope of athletes’ and brand’s ESG impact, determining athletes’ brand values through a holistic, data-driven approach and matching brands with athletes based on impact areas of interest and media reach.

“It’s our hope that the publicly available VIBE scores will create buzz and good conversation around the power of sport for good, and lead to opportunities for CoPeace to aid brands in undertaking business endeavors that have positive measurable impact, whether they be the personal brands of athletes, sponsors, brand marketers, leagues and more,” said Craig Jonas, CEO of CoPeace. “Our overall mission with this new tool is to encourage those with influence to continue building their reach and platform in a way that will make a difference and set an example for others to follow.”

The VIBE™ tool is an expansion of CoPeace’s presence in the sports arena. In October 2020, CoPeace launched CoPeace Sport, a wholly owned subsidiary designed to engage in brand equity management, impact measurement and organizational engagement to bring social and environmental impact to the forefront of the sports industry.

CoPeace Launches Regulation CF Equity Crowdfunding Offering to Fund Impact Investing Initiatives

July 8, 2020


Following a successful private fund raise, impact holding company seeks conscious investors of all backgrounds interested in growing their money through investments in positive-impact companies

DENVER (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)CoPeace, a diversified holding company which invests in growing companies demonstrating positive measurable impact and strong fiscal health, today announced it has launched a Regulation CF equity crowdfunding offering following the validation of its Form C by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The purpose of this offering is to allow both accredited and non-accredited potential investors the opportunity to invest in a holding company that directly invests in for-profit companies seeking solutions to societal and environmental problems, while striving for a competitive financial return.

CoPeace’s Regulation CF equity crowdfunding offering allows the company to sell up to $1,069,920 worth of shares to the public. Shares are priced at $120.00 USD each with a minimum investment of $360 (three shares). The offering will be conducted on a best efforts basis through the Wefunder Portal, https://wefunder.com/copeace.

CoPeace fills a massive gap that currently exists in the competitive landscape of impact investing – one that provides access to the investing process, while prioritizing true impact and emphasizing the potential returns. Currently no services exist for everyday consumers to invest in the impact space without a strong understanding of the industry, financial literacy, and personal wealth. There is tremendous opportunity for CoPeace’s investing model with more than 8-in-10 U.S. investors interested in sustainable investing and the impact investing market seeing explosive growth this year, climbing to $715B as of April 2020.

“Today is an exciting day for CoPeace, as we launch our Regulation CF equity crowdfunding offering to enable investment in not only our company, but ultimately in companies that are actually combating world problems with measurable impact,” said CoPeace CEO Craig Jonas. “There is a common misconception that profits and positive impact are mutually exclusive. The current global capitalism structure prioritizes profits over people and planet. CoPeace is offering a different option, one in which the environment and society are on equal footing with profits. As such, we believe we can help change capitalism and the world for the better.”

CoPeace recently secured $1.6M in a private funding round to facilitate investments in socially impactful organizations and acquire meaningful subsidiaries, as well as contribute to general operating costs. Capital raised through Regulation CF equity crowdfunding offering will support CoPeace’s current portfolio of three companies centered on climate crisis solutions, cleantech innovation, and economic equality opportunities, while helping expand their holdings to include themes of public health, education, and financial accessibility.

CoPeace Secures $1.6M in Private Funding Round to Facilitate Investment in Profitable, Positive-Impact Companies

June 23, 2020


First-of-its-kind holding company creates opportunity to invest in businesses focusing on climate crisis solutions, cleantech innovation, economic equality, and more

DENVER (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)CoPeace, a diversified holding company which invests in growing companies demonstrating positive measurable impact and strong fiscal health, today announced it has secured $1.6M in funding through a private capital raise. The round included more than 48 influential individuals from within their private network of investors, including family/friends and successful entrepreneurs and businesspeople.

CoPeace is the first holding company to provide an accessible means to invest directly in for-profit companies seeking solutions to societal and environmental problems, while striving for a competitive financial return. As a holding company, CoPeace utilizes investor capital to purchase controlling interest in complementary, purpose-driven holdings through a unique investment approach that creates a path for nearly anyone to participate in impact investing, including communities often overlooked in traditional investing.

“With the support of our investors, CoPeace will use this funding to make investments in socially impactful organizations and acquire meaningful subsidiaries, as well as contribute to general operating costs,” said CoPeace CEO Craig Jonas. “The mission behind everything we do at CoPeace is to continue democratizing impact investing and help individuals of all investing backgrounds grow their money for good. Many self-described ‘impact’ investment opportunities available today are not truly aligned with achieving impact goals, prioritizing financial return over effective impact. The CoPeace approach considers stakeholders, not just shareholders, when making investment decisions, and empowers investors to build wealth while making a difference.”

CoPeace uses a Head + Heart + Math formula when vetting potential partners to identify companies with innovative, marketable concepts and a strong leadership team, who are combating world problems with measurable impact and are projected to have positive growth and potential target returns. Currently, CoPeace’s portfolio includes three companies, Advanced Sustainable Technologies, CoFi LLC and Uncharted Power, all of which focus on climate crisis solutions, cleantech innovation, and economic equality opportunities. Future holdings will fall under the themes of public health, education, and financial accessibility.

“It is an honor to have CoPeace as a part of the Uncharted Power community,” said Jessica O. Mathews, Founder & CEO of Uncharted Power. “The CoPeace team members have provided guidance that has been invaluable to our growth. Knowing how deeply their values in solving environmental and social issues align with ours makes working with them all the more powerful.”

According to Morgan Stanley’s 2019 study on investor interest in sustainable investing, more than 8-in-10 (85%) of U.S. individual investors expressed interest in sustainable investing, yet 65% cited a lack of available products as the barrier to including sustainable investing in their portfolio. CoPeace fills a much-needed void that currently exists in the competitive landscape of impact investing – one that provides access to the direct investing process, while prioritizing true impact and profit.
