The owners of area certified B Corporations (B Corps) and Mountain BizWorks have joined forces as the Asheville B Corp Network with one goal in mind: to make Western North Carolina a B Corp hub. To that end, they invite companies currently working toward certification or others interested in learning more about becoming a B Corp to their Fast Track Hackathon on June 21 at Deltec Homes from 3 to 5 pm. Attendees will work toward completing the B Impact Assessment—central to the certification process—and will be able to share and learn best practices with existing B Corps and representatives from the B Lab certifying agency. Deltec, WNC’s newest certified B Corp, will offer an optional tour of their facility from 2:30-3 pm before the event begins. A networking social will immediately follow the hackathon from 5:30 until 7 pm at New Belgium Brewing, also a proud B Corp engaged both locally and globally in the cause.
