With the rise of impact-focused businesses and organizations, a myriad of new legal structures have popped up over the last five years to accommodate the mission-meets-profit ethos. From hybrid models to Benefit Corporations, these legal structures are designed to help impact entrepreneurs distinguish themselves among customers, investors, and stakeholders. But how do you know which model is right for your impact organization? To help make sense of it all, Impact Engine has compiled an experienced panel of lawyers, entrepreneurs, and investors who will discuss the legal, financial, and marketing implications of each option—C-Corp, LLC, nonprofit, L3C, Benefit Corporation—and everything in between. You’ll learn about the key differences between these structures and important questions to ask yourself before choosing or changing your legal setup. Audience Q&A to follow.
