Founder & CEO
Mike was educated to believe that “greed is good.” He started his first business while in college and grew it to over $50 million in revenue with customers in 177 countries. But after an eye-opening audit by the Environmental Protection Agency, he realized he could no longer grow his business at the expense of his values and principles.
He committed to changing the way business is done. But first, he would have to start with how his business was run. He founded Impact Grove as a California Benefit Corporation, Certified B Corp, Business Member of 1% For The Planet, and Member of the American Sustainable Business Network (ASBN).
Today he helps impact-driven business leaders increase their profits BECAUSE of their investments in people and the planet.
In more detail, he works with leaders and their companies to help them identify and leverage their competitive advantages of environmental sustainability and socially equitable practices. He creates sales & marketing strategies to compete against and take market share from their profit-addicted competitors that only care about making as much money as possible - at all costs to the environment and human beings.
Our advisory board consists of world-leading experts in their fields. Their diverse life & professional experiences inform our work to help impact-driven business leaders succeed!
We support and advocate for all seventeen of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which provide a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
