RevHubOC, a social entrepreneurship advocate operating in Orange County, extends its vision by investing in Aleria, a health/human equity venture incubated within a recent cohort.
Irvine, CA, October 2022 | Newfound public benefit corporation Aleria has received financial support from social enterprise incubator RevHubOC after completing the incubator’s rigorous venture-shaping program.
Leveraging a patent-pending framework and proprietary software, Aleria is a health/human equity venture that measures workplace inclusion by interacting with employees to better understand their day-to-day experiences. It then pinpoints areas where business leaders can focus their resources for optimal impact.
As a community of investors, entrepreneurs, mentors, and partners, RevHubOC merges entrepreneurial for-profit ventures with non-profit sustainability. Aleria’s advanced approach closely aligns with RevHubOC’s vision for social entrepreneurs in Orange County and beyond.
In addition to sponsoring Aleria’s mission, RevHubOC’s President and CEO Stephan Erkelens is focusing RevHubOC’s efforts on shaping the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Orange County with the intention of gaining momentum throughout the state, eventually reaching national and international scale.
“OC is an emerging sector and economic driver, spawning new jobs where potential millions are being employed to benefit society, the environment, and other valuable causes,” says Erkelens. “Local foundations, churches, corporations, universities, and the OC public sector all encourage innovation here.”
Erkelens co-founded RevHubOC with the support of other seasoned professionals who have a proven track record in charitable giving, business, finance, and social enterprise. Compelled by a unified vision, the group strives to create a better mechanism to fund and sustain social enterprises both at home and around the world. They intend RevHubOC to become a collaborative ecosystem of like-minded innovators such as Aleria, where both founders and funders are able to accelerate the impact of nascent social enterprises.
