We are part of a global movement made of thousands of Benefit Corporations and B Corps that are trying to accelerate the transition towards regenerative and sustainable business models.
This change can happen only if we include younger generations in the process, as the talented of today will be the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. This way, we empower them to take on systemic projects with high environmental and social impact.
B Corp School was born on a summer day in Cascais, near the ocean, during the B Corp European Summit. In this inspiring setting we presented the idea of creating the first B Corp School, a project to bring benefit entrepreneurship into schools, to hundreds of people of the B Corp community.
Thanks to the enthusiasm and trust of many of the B Corps that were present, the idea took shape and, back in Italy in october, InVento Lab together with B Lab Europe, Nativa and the involvement of global ambassadors of the movement, launched the first edition of B Corp School.
B Corp School is activism, the creation of positive impact and inspiration. B Corp School is the first project (recognised in Italy by the Ministry of Education) that connects schools with Benefit Corporations and other companies that share the same values, to discover new talents and spread the benefit values among students of High Schools and Universities.
As of today, it has involved thousands of students all over Italy and an incredible network of B Corps and institutional partners.
This is why B Corp School is a project of great social impact, especially for those companies that choose to become not only mentors for our students, but also spokespeople for a tangible change towards a more sustainable and inclusive future, both for the students and the territories they operate in.
B Corps, inspiring participants with their know-how and their expertise, support their team in making the difference in their territory through the creation of green and innovative start ups. At the end of the project, all start ups, together with the B Corps that guided them, enter the Changemaker Competition, an opportunity of great national visibility and networking for talented youth and businesses.
