Selfless.ly Becomes Indiana's First Domestic Benefit Corporation and Certified B Corp
The certification process measures a company's social and environmental performance, public transparency, inclusion, and legal accountability. Certified B Corps also amend their legal governing documents to grant the ability for their board of directors to make decisions that are not only profitable, but positive for their community, employees, and environment. Selfless.ly joins this community alongside other brands such as Patagonia, Ben & Jerry's, Kickstarter, and most recently Toms.
"I made the decision to build the company this way because I believe that I have a responsibility to my employees, customers, and community to always do my best at running the business the right way. Our culture must reflect the passion I have to make positive change and also my expectation of anyone who joins the company," says Joshua Driver, founder and CEO of the company. "I wanted to create technology that makes these goals more accessible for any company to implement, so why wouldn't we drink our own kool-aid? We hope that other companies in the Hoosier state will join us in achieving B Corp status as well. There are so many companies here in Indiana that are perfect for B Corp certification, and we are proud to be joining our friends at Bohlsen Group and FairWinds Advisors in setting this example for others." Bohlsen Group and FairWinds Advisors are also Indiana-based certified B Corps.
