“While B Corps are now a global network of more than 3,500 companies, they are still a relatively new concept in some regions of the United States and the world where people are less familiar with businesses operating as a force for good. To raise local awareness and build regional business networks, B Corp leaders across the U.S. and Canada are forming B Local organizations that tap into community strengths and establish a foundation for future growth,” writes Christopher Marquis in Forbes.

Marquis spoke with alumnus Jared Meyers (BSBA ’98), Chairman of Legacy Vacation Resorts and Salt Palm Development in Florida and one of the founders of Florida for Good, about B Corps, and how the University of Florida’s Business for Good Lab has been successful in educating students about B Corps and helping businesses improve their impact and become B Corps.

“America’s historical approach to antitrust has promoted economic competition for the consumer’s benefit. Decades of scholarship and careful legal practice created this approach and formulated rigorous analytical tools to support it, enabling a vibrant, dynamic, and market-oriented economy.

Recently, a new movement has arisen that seeks to undo this approach and replace it with policies that allow antitrust enforcers latitude to take action for any number of reasons. This movement’s philosophies dominate the House Judiciary Committee staff proposals — the most recent of which endorses significant regulatory measures against Big Tech.”
