An Insider's view of Swell Investing

What are some social events your company does?

Swell's "Purpose Meets Profit" events are all about bringing together local, socially conscious entrepreneurs to talk about how they do business at the intersection of success and intention. Swell was built by people who genuinely care about the impact our dollars have on the world, and it shows.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I was in awe when I first arrived at Swell at the collaborative environment. I had previously worked at start ups that touted their team collaboration but often fell short. At Swell I've learned that collaboration, when done right can lead to a really authentic product, mission, and workforce.
