NC State B Corp Clinic – Spring 2018 Kickoff
February 2, 2018 | 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Join the NC State Poole College Business Sustainability Collaborative on Friday, February 2nd from 12:30pm – 2pm for a Live AND Virtual event to kick off the Spring 2018 B Corp Clinic. The B Corp Clinic is a collaboration between the Business Sustainability Collaborative, the Entrepreneurship Clinic, HQ Raleigh, and the NC State Net Impact Chapters. The web-conferencing link will be sent out to the virtual RVSP list one day prior to the kickoff. Even if you’re not able to attend in real time (in-person or virtually), register for the virtual event and we’ll follow up with a recording and details about applying for the Clinic.
The B Corp Clinic offers students hands-on consulting experience and the chance to learn about B Corporations, social and environmental impact assessment, and sustainable business models. 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 three years, the B Corp Clinic has worked with over 180+ students on 29 projects and helped companies make progress on over 1200 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. The B Corp Clinic launch event will feature an introduction to B Corporations, an opportunity to learn more about the Spring 2018 B Corp Clinic projects, student expectations and how to get involved.
