What’s Our Story?
The Center for Missional Entrepreneurship (“CME”) is a not-for-profit initiative developed to support those who Os Guinness called “Entrepreneurs of Life” – people steward organizations which play a strategic role in creating culture that brings glory to God and advances redemption in the world.
“…supporting those who steward organizations that play strategic roles in creating redemptive culture.”
The Center for Missional Entrepreneurship (“CME”) is sponsored by co-founders Tim Krupa and Jim Van Eerden. Discounted contract services are provided by HELIXX Partners, a private firm that provides agency and merchant banking services for high-impact entrepreneurs, as well as other aligned vendors as needed. CME is also sustained by expense stipends from Clients or their Patrons, by donations of time, services and funding from other entrepreneurs, and by success-based compensation from client work as it unfolds.
In addition, CME Holdings, LLC has been created to take investment positions in for-profit enterprises that reflect the mission of CME. CME Holdings specializes in “impact investing” involving companies that have aligned revenue and kingdom-impact objectives in a compelling way.
Based on experiences providing best-of-class “blended value” enterprise development services for a wide range of individual, corporate and ministry partners, CME serves missional entrepreneurs to help them drive positive business, cultural and philanthropic impact.
