While researching and writing “The B Corp Handbook,” I found that B Corp certification can help you attract: mission-driven or impact investors who consider social, environmental and financial criteria in their investment decisions; mainstream investors who are primarily interested in strong financial returns; and larger companies interested in acquiring a cutting-edge and innovative brand.

“Our shareholders knew about and supported our B Corp certification. Harvest Power is focused on profitability as a business, and I don’t think becoming a B Corporation contradicts that.”  – Paul Sellew, Founder, Harvest Power
