2013 was a year of building for PCV. After launching several new programs and platforms in 2012, we set about growing our national advising platform and our global impact investing policy platform. The national expansion of our Business Advising program proves the value of mentorship: PCV companies across American created 1000% more jobs than the national average. And, we hosted an impact investing conference in London with 100 researchers and public officials from around the world.
Speaking of collaboration: our InSight team released Breaking the Binary: Policy Guide to Scaling Social Innovation in collaboration with Harvard, Schwab Foundation and the World Economic Forum. On the homefront, PCV’s impact evaluation of CA State Bill AB-32 led to its passage, creating an estimated 3,128 jobs!
