The the MPA Club, co-hosting with the Sustainable Business Club, will be holding a panel discussion on Benefit Corporations this Monday, October 3rd.
An entirely new type of company, the Benefit Corporation has been created to marry the efficiency and discipline-building effects of a profit motive with the social mandate of a nonprofit. This panel discussion will explain the certification process, tax benefits, environmental and social auditing standards, and first hand experiences of companies belonging to the first generation of Benefit Corporations. Come join us to discover what is set to become the future of social entrepreneurship.
