CANCELLED: Aspiring Social Entrepreneur Series: B Corp 101 Measuring What Matters

CANCELLED: Aspiring Social Entrepreneur Series: B Corp 101 Measuring What Matters B Corps™ make up a global movement of entrepreneurs who are dedicated to making a positive impact, whether it’s by improving the livelihoods of their workers, strengthening their community ties, or revolutionizing current green practices. 

The common thread linking Certified B Corporations®, such as Alberta-based Chandos and Fiasco Gelato, is that they were created and are run by people who define success as more than money – and they measure it using the B Corp assessment.

If you are a purpose-driven entrepreneur or an employee of a purpose driven business and are interested in completing an impact ‘health check’ using the B Impact Assessment, this workshop is for you.  

This workshop will help you measure the impact your company has on:

  • Your employees

  • The community

  • The environment

  • Your customers

You’ll gain insight into the ways your company is making a  strong and beneficial impact, as well as areas for improvement. Participants will be given unlimited access to the Measure What Matters tool: a free, confidential digital platform tailored to the B Corp principals. 

Please bring your laptop.
