Who They Are, What’s Happening with these Innovative Laws, and What Could It Mean for Social Enterpreneurs in the Region.
Join socially-responsible business owners and social entrepreneurs in Annapolis on the morning of Jan. 24 to discuss findings from the first survey and report on Benefit Corporation and LLC activity in Maryland since new laws went into effect. The release of findings will be followed by a working session of entrepreneurs, advisors, and impact investors to explore next steps for promoting and scaling “common good enterprise” activity in the region.
This will be the first study of the first Benefit Corporations and Benefit LLCs in the country in the first state to pass the laws, and will be released by the first Benefit LLC, ChangeMatters. Research was conducted during the 2012 Fall semester by an MBA team at the Robert H. Smith School of Business's Center for Social Value Creation at University of Maryland as part of the Smith Experience.
