About bCause

Branding from the heart: Armed with over a decade of experience and a fresh, new innovative version of branding, Bedrock’s bCause was birthed. bCause focuses on repositioning and repurposing an organization’s brand through a collaborative process that defines, designs and delivers to the heart of the customer experience.

We are a B Corp bCause of our own commitment to “become the change we seek” as a for-profit enterprise. More than ever today, organizations need the tools to sustain themselves and communicate the positive impact they are making in this world through a strong, clear brand and customer experience.

The Change We Seek®

The reality for most organizations today is that their greatest need is funding. Without funds, no matter how much of a positive impact they have in this world, they cannot sustain themselves and will eventually become extinct.

bCause is committed to transforming cause-driven organizations into thriving, sustainable enterprises, helping them to reach their full, profitable potential. By building on their foundation through brand experience and transformation strategies, organizational development, capacity building and the creation of social enterprises, bCause is able to partner with enterprises to develop a sustainable model.

bCause uses the consortium model of doing business, gathering a team of talented, minority business owners together to integrate sustainable business and brand solutions to benefit the communities and the world.
