This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

The newly launched B Local CT is thrilled to invite you to celebrate the potential for our state to be a leader in the Business as a Force for Good movement. 

B Locals are place-based communities of people using business as a force for good. At the core of every B Local are Certified B Corporations — for-profit companies using the power of business to transform the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet. Certified B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab that meet the high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. There are currently more than 5,600 Certified B Corps across the globe from 85 countries, across 158 industries. B Corps have one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.

B Local Connecticut is a collaborative group dedicated to using Business as a Force for Good. It aims to provide the resources and support for like-minded companies and organizations to make environmentally conscious, ethically minded, and socially responsible choices. It aims to create economic opportunities within Connecticut that will drive equitable and inclusive growth.

We’re honored to have the wisdom and inspiration of Vincent Stanley, Patagonia’s Director of Philosophy, and investor and First Lady of Connecticut, Annie Lamont, as our speakers. 

Please join us if you are:

  • An experienced champion and leader of business as a force for good;
  • Curious about the potential to do well by doing good, as a consumer, employee, entrepreneur, or investor; or 
  • Eager to meet people who are using money, time, and/or energy to grow businesses that make the world a better place!
