About this Event

BDC and Thriving Vancouver - a project of the Vancouver Economic Commission - are pleased to present B Corp 101 – Learning to Measure What Matters.

Measure what matters: your company’s health and impact on others

Does your company help make Vancouver a better place to live?

Are you striving to improve the livelihoods of your employees, to forge solid relationships with your community, and to preserve the environment through business?

Good news: there is a global movement of entrepreneurs just like you! And they use a new business tool and certification designed just for them.

B Corps™ use business as a force for good

Certified B Corporations® are a global movement of companies created and run by people who define success as more than money. Local examples of these purpose-driven businesses include tentree, Renewal Funds, Lunapads, and Realize Strategies.

Join this workshop to learn the value of measuring your impact

If you’re a business owner or employee interested in certifying—or simply looking to complete an impact “health check”—then this workshop is for you!

During this session, you will learn how you can measure your impact like B Corps do: by using a robust tool known as the B Corp Impact Assessment. This free, confidential assessment measures a company’s success and impact in the following areas:

  • Governance
  • Employees
  • Community
  • Environment
  • Clients

Let’s start your journey together.

Who should attend?

This session is intended for entrepreneurs or employees of purpose-driven businesses who are interested in managing their impact and/or obtaining the B Corp Certification.

All registered attendees will receive a link to the workshop 2 days prior.

Hear their stories! Podcast interviews with B Corp entrepreneurs at The B Corp Effect, available on Google Play and Apple Podcasts.
