Do you want your business to change the world? Join us for this morning introduction to the rapidly growing global B Corp movement. You’ll have opportunity to:
- get to know the team here at 2030hub, the only UK B Corp hub outside of London
- meet other likeminded business people from across the Northwest
- find whether B Corp could be the organisational model you’ve been looking for
With brands like Kickstarter, Ben & Jerry’s, Method, Triodos Bank, Ecover, Innocent Drinks and Patagonia already converted B Corps, you could soon be in world changing company. Here at 2030hub we’re the Northwest champions of this refreshing, energised movement and the focal point for the growing northwern B Corp community.
What is B Corp?
B Corp aims to encourage traditional for-profit businesses of all sizes to better balance profit with purpose. B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or organic certification is to milk; it tells the world that you stand for something more than profit alone.
The Body Shop was bought by Brazilian B Corp Natura in the world’s first $1 billion buy-out only a few months ago but you don’t have to be aiming for these dizzying heights to join us. Micro busiensses can become B Corps too!
2030hub’s Founder David Connor is an official B Leader Regional Champion. David will guide the group through:
- what a B Corp is (and what it isn’t)
- the benefits of becoming a B Corp
- the B Impact Assesement process
There is a growing community of more than 2,500 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and over 130 industries working together toward one unifying goal, to redefine success in business.
The group size is limited so advance sign up is advised.
