As you may well know, the annual B Corps Champions Retreat will be held this October (October 19 and 20). Anyone who wants to get their company certified and attend the retreat this fall will need to complete the process in the next couple of months. We can put you on the fast track to certification!
Join Mountain BizWorks and Asheville B Corp Network for an afternoon hackathon followed by a B Corp and values-based business social at New Belgium Brewery.* This event is an opportunity for existing and prospective B Corps to gather in the same room and work together on the B Impact Assessment, which is the first step in the certification process. It will be a great time to share best practices, ask questions, and get some help on documentation. We’ll have owners of local B Corps and members from the global B Lab team on hand to assist you in becoming a B Corp or modifying your assessment to address any new ways you’re using business as a force for good. If you have your own laptop or tablet, please bring with you; we will provide some laptops for use during the event.
* There is no cost to attend this event, but we do request that you RSVP below.
