This Inc. report, How a Business Can Change the World, details six business models that social entrepreneurs are using to build their ventures. I find it strange that the article does NOT mention one of the most interesting and paradigm shifting aspects of a B Corp Namely, that B Corps boards can turn down the highest bidders during mergers/takeovers thereby allowing the Board to consider other factors beyond the dollars, such as preservation of mission. By law, all C Corps have a fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders to accept the highest bidder, even if other parts of the deal don’t make sense. Read the classic example of the sale of Ben and Jerry’s to Unilever, to see how a B Corp could have dramatically changed the ownership outcome. Thank you to Pipeline Fund Fellow Maggie Williams for forwarding along the Opinionator post.
