What are B Corps™?
B Corps represent a movement of entrepreneurs who are proud of their companies’ positive impact, whether it’s improving the livelihoods of their workers, strengthening their community ties, or revolutionizing current green practices! The common thread linking Certified B Corporations®, such as Toronto-based Propeller Coffee Co. and Gladstone Hotel, is that they define success as more than money – and they measure it using the B Corp assessment.

This workshop is intended for purpose driven entrepreneurs or employees of purpose driven businesses who are interested in managing their impact through the B Impact Assessment. Each attendee will work in the B Impact Assessment as part of the workshop so bring a laptop or tablet suitable for this portion of the workshop. It will be ideal for actively profitable businesses that have been running and operating for a minimum of 2 years.
