What is a B Corp?
The B stands for ‘Benefit’!
B Corps are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.
Covintus was certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our… employees, our community, the environment, and our customers.
Today, there are over 2,100 Certified B Corps around the globe, including Patagonia, Leesa, and Ben & Jerry. We are proud to join them in redefining success in business, so that one day everyone uses business as a force for good. To learn more about our certification, check out our B Corp profile.
Why we became a B Corp?
We began working with a local accelerator and shortly discovered there is a huge gap in the need for high quality software development and the ability for startups to attain and sustain such caliber of tech talent.
We began providing free tech consulting and offering a huge discount on services to accelerator program participants, incubators, co-working spaces, non-profits, Certified B Corps and Benefit Corporations across the country.
This led us to the B Corp Certification, which allows us to build relationships with those very organizations which share our values and goals.
