About Us - Inspiring Capital

ABOUT US

MISSION

Our mission is to re-inspire the American workforce. We aim to help individuals, organizations, and employers align their skills, interests, and needs with the needs of their communities and the world, to do work that really matters. In doing so, we create a purpose-driven, motivated workforce! 

VISION

We envision a future in which all of us discover our personal drive and professional capacity to contribute to organizations that integrate their profit and purpose to build thriving communities. In turn, these communities make up a world that provides opportunity for all its citizens to prosper.

HISTORY

Inspiring Capital was founded in 2013 and became a B Corp the same year. We began as a one-woman consulting firm to help nonprofits find more sustainable ways to finance their work, championing the integration of profit and purpose. From there, we have evolved our model in response to market feedback, realizing that bridging the divide between social impact organizations and the private sector is critical for ushering in a healthy, equitable, and new economy. We’ve created an ecosystem of purpose driven individuals and organizations, all of whom are ready for the new economy.

NELL DERICK DEBEVOISE

Nell’s mission is to connect divergent ideas and people in a way that helps people discover work that they find fulfilling, which is what we need to heal the world.

Nell is passionate about translating insights from business and entrepreneurship to drive social change. She speaks about this work in diverse settings, including Harvard, Columbia, Yale Social Enterprise, the Global CFA Institute, High Water Women, and iRelaunch conferences.
