In all industries including the tech industry, there is a growing business movement in Oregon helping build healthy and equitable communities. Entrepreneurs, Millennials, Boomers, small and midsize companies, even nonprofits and NGOs are discovering how to positively impact the world and make a profit. The movement’s focus: the “Triple Bottom Line,” or People, Planet and Profit. These companies are called Benefit Companies, Benefit Corporations and B Corps and they believe and act differently than other businesses.

In this hands-on workshop, we:

-Give you with the business case for this model

-Share with you why it is gaining traction across the state and across the country

-Explain the differences between a Benefit Company, Benefit Corporation, and a B-Corp -Share insight from Oregon business leaders embracing this model and how it has helped them thrive.

This session is facilitated by Tom Hering and MaryAnne Harmer of Benefit Corporations for Good.
