B Corp Certification Hackathon *FREE!*

  • Hopworks Urban Bewery 2944 SE Powell Blvd Portland, Oregon (map)

Join representatives of B Local PDX & our Certified B Corp community on Tuesday, December 4 at 1pm at Hopworks for on-site expert assistance in B Corp Certification and the B Impact Assessment. Come with a laptop for working on the assessment and your burning questions! Expect to make some good progress on your Certification or Re-Certification process. We highly recommend signing up for and reviewing the B Impact Assessment in advance, and coming prepared with your biggest stuck points.

New to the B Impact Assessment? Need some help figuring out where to go next with your B Corp journey? Want to learn more about the new Version 6 of the BIA? Sometimes, you just have to jump in the pool!

Bring your key players to B Local PDX’s Certification Hackathon,where we’ll fill the room with prospective B Corps, recertifying B Corps, and experts on the assessment--including support from standards analysts at B Lab.

Whether you’re familiar with the assessment or this is your first real opportunity to dig in with your company, this is a great opportunity to measure your score and learn some best practices to aid in certification!

We can help identify low-hanging fruit, build next steps, and suggest certification tools and resources to help you chart a path to 80 points—or beyond! Heading into 2019, there’s never been a better time to get your company certified and equip your company for a successful B Corp certification.

Spaces are limited, so please be sure to RSVP. This event is sponsored by B Local PDX with support from our community, and is 100% free! We at B Local PDX exist to serve our growing community and we hope to see your company join our ranks!
