Insights: Webinars Benefit Corporations v. "B Corps": What Are They and Why Do They Matter?

Contra Costa County Bar Association (CCCBA) Business Law Section CLE

Thursday, February 4, 2021

In the recent years, many social entrepreneurs have sought to combine their passion for instilling and sustaining positive social impact with their for-profit goals. At present, 35 States have authorized the creation of benefit corporations (also known as public benefit corporations in Delaware), which allow social entrepreneurs to create for-profit corporate entities with goals of enacting a positive impact on society, workers, the surrounding community, and/or the environment, in addition to reaping a profit. This informative CLE provides the audience with a preliminary introduction to this type of business entity, an explanation of why a social entrepreneur might want to incorporate this entity, and requirements of and funding opportunities for (public) benefit corporations.
