Proposed Initial Network of CED Benefit Corporations and B Corps

The project is Expanding the Circle of Success by establishing a network and a "strategic marketecture" of Community Economic Development Benefit Corporations incorporated in each state where legislation has been passed (and in a couple where legislation is pending).

The intention is to attract individuals, not-for-profit organizations and businesses in each state to participate as cofounders, resource providers, and as beneficiaries of the training, technical assistance and access to capital the State CED B Corps will deliver and to get positioned to utilize the crowd funding provisions of the JOBS Act.

We are presently filing Articles of Incorporation in the States that have passed legislation. We will also incorporate CED Benefit Corporations in states where legislation is pending and we will promote Certification of B Corps in other states.

B Lab is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Learn about B Corps at www.bcorporation.net. Learn about Benefit Corporations at http://www.benefitcorp.net/
