Student Application for Spring 2018 B Corp Clinic Open Thru 2/13

Have you ever wondered how companies become B Corps? B Corps—like Warby Parker, New Belgium Brewing, and Patagonia—are “for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.” For the last three years, the NC State B Corp Clinic, a multi-school collaborative program has helped North Carolina companies achieve B Corp certification by working with teams of graduate and undergraduate students from universities across the state.

Companies are matched with a team of students (intentionally designed to include students from multiple schools and disciplines) to go through the assessment process and identify strategies they can take to improve their B Corp scores. Students gain hands-on consulting experience and the chance to learn about social and environmental impact assessment and sustainable business models.

Over the last three years, the B Corp Clinic has worked with over 180+ students on 29 projects and helped companies make progress on over 1300 points towards certification, including 6 companies that have become B Corp Certified. Stay tuned for information about the Spring 2018 B Corp Clinic companies. You can read more about our past B Corp Clinic projects and hear from past students participants in our new B Corp Clinic video on the B Corp Clinic website.
