We became a B Corporation because we wanted to create a space that fostered a culture of intentionality and thoughtfulness. A place where startups could not only grow successful companies, but make a positive social impact and create a space where people wanted to come to work everyday. We knew if we could model the B Corps mindset, we could influence young companies to create great businesses.

HQ Raleigh hopes to make the Triangle a top five region in the country for entrepreneurship, fostering companies that create lasting positive social and economic change.
