Limited Capacity seats available

B Corps want to be part of something bigger than themselves, but for many, becoming a B Corp also has to make business sense. Maybe you want to: Differential Yourself from Pretenders, Lead a Movement, Attract Investors, Generate Press, Benchmark Performance, Save Money and Access Services, Protect Your Mission, Attract and Engage Talent, Participate in a National Ad Campaign, Pass Legislation or Partner with Peers. So many reasons. What’s yours?

This workshop starts with a short presentation on the B Corp Movement and ends with helping you get started with your own confidential B Quick Assessment or Full B Impact Assessment. Be sure to bring your laptops to easily access the B Corp Assessment.
