Investors’ Circle-Social Venture Network Rescinds Award from Gov. Eric Greitens

On March 14, 2018 ASBC member Investor's Circle-Social Venture Network (SVN) released a statement announcing its decision to rescind the 2011 SVN Innovation Award that was presented to Eric Greitens, founder of The Mission Continues. The decision is in response to Greitens' actions as Governor of Missouri to reduce the Missouri minimum wage from $10/hr to $7.70/hr. 

“As a statement of solidarity with the communities most directly impacted by the Missouri Governor’s policies and actions—poor and working class communities, people of color, and women—Investors’ Circle-Social Venture Network rescinds the 2011 Innovation Award presented to Eric Greitens.”

ASBC applauds Investor's Circle-Social Venture Network’s decision.
