Member News

Start the new academic year with a blast and commit to building a ‘better business‘. Join our online B Corp programme and work towards creating a business that people want to work for, buy from and invest in. The B Corp movement is growing rapidly with the numbers of certified businesses increasing 70% over the last 7 months. B Corp certification is recognition that a business has achieved the gold standard in social and environmental impact.

Why become B Corp certified?

B Corps represent a new generation of businesses – those who want to ensure that their operations positively impact all their stakeholders. They are an elite and forward-thinking group but form a welcoming and supportive community. You want to be part of this, leading and innovating from the front. Being a B Corp brings many benefits and competitive advantages. Here are some headlines, taken from a survey of over 100 B Corps, as compared to average.

  • Increased turnover
  • Greater levels of employee retention, engagement and diversity
  • Higher levels of innovation
  • Greater success at securing equity finance

How does the programme work?

Join a cohort of like-minded SMEs (max 6) online for 1hr/week, starting 13/9/23 and running for 8 weeks. You will need to do about 2-3hrs of extra preparation and homework in between sessions. We have two places available, so secure your spot fast!
