Attitudes towards business have changed, with many for-profit companies and startups pursuing objectives beyond just profit growth--looking to integrate their values directly into their business model. B Corps and Public Benefit Corporations are those inspiring companies raising the bar for a new standard of purpose-driven business.

If you’ve explored this option you know that this assessment sets a very high bar for companies and highlights the best of the best when it comes to social, environmental and economic impact. How do you know if this is the right path for your business?

Join the conversation with social enterprise companies, with leaders who have gone through the process of becoming a Benefit Corporation and B Corp. Together we will workshop ideas on how becoming a social enterprise can help advance your business goals, and show you where to start when you are ready to take the leap into this gold standard for good business.
