Building Better Businesses: BCorps, Benefit Corporations, and Social Enterprises
October 10, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Have you been thinking about applying to become a BCorp, or wondered what’s behind a company’s claim to be a “social enterprise?” What are the best ways to build a business that demonstrates your values, and “does well by doing good?”
Join our panel on October 10 to hear from local business owners who are answering these questions in practice across different industries. Stay to learn how you might implement similar measures to start or run your business with a triple-bottom line mentality and metrics, considering the social, environmental, and financial return on your work.
Following the panel, participants will break out into peer workshop groups with panelists, representatives from B Local Boston, and other social enterprise practicioners for Q&A around better business practice implementation so that attendees can test what application of similar principles would look like in practice for their own organizations along different models.
See the panelists and RSVP here.
