Changing the World Isn’t Easy...

By Meg Masten


Something’s gotta change. We live in a world plagued by mass shootings, natural disasters, stock market instability, and rampant social injustice. The current status is not an acceptable trajectory, and we must do better for future generations. We founded CoPeace last year with the intent to change the world (no joke) by shifting the paradigm of capitalism. No one ever said this would be an easy road, but I had no idea how hard it would be.

At CoPeace, we are doing something in a unique and creative way that hasn’t been done before. CoPeace is a first-of-its-kind as trailblazers with no path to follow. Anyone who has birthed a company knows all too well the challenges and setbacks that come with a startup. Now insert the concept of doing something that has never been done before in the finance industry, which has historically been resistant to change or simply unwilling to try something innovative. Even legal and financial experts have occasionally been perplexed by this road-never-traveled. We are causing major disruption, with no established roadmap to lead the way.

At CoPeace, we are tackling difficult issues. Having conversations about money, investing, and generational wealth can make people uncomfortable. Add in more layers of complexity with the plethora of impact sectors – from fair trade to ocean plastic to energy – and we are facing the daunting reality of today’s world. Blending the complexities of the investment world with the complexities of the impact space can make your head spin, become disheartened, or both. 

But….at CoPeace, we are a determined, tenacious, and resilient bunch. We are creative, innovative, think-outside-the-box kind of people, who haven’t forgotten that sometimes a good sense of humor is the strongest weapon against adversity. We strive everyday to execute our mission of successfully merging profits with purpose. We understand the critical nature of our work, and we believe we have no other option than to change the world. But let’s be real…it isn’t easy.
