Undergraduate and graduate students from colleges and universities across North Carolina are welcome to participate. Students will work in interdisciplinary, cross-university teams of 4-5 with their selected company and in partnership with subject matter experts to set tactical goals to help the company improve their impact over time.

Over the last two years, the B Corp Clinic has worked with 157 students on 24 projects and helped companies make progress on over 1200 points towards certification, including 5 companies that have become B Corp Certified.
