- Becoming A Benefit Corporation Is Complicated: This Startup Wants To Help
By Ben Schiller - Thursday Aug 17, 2017
Clerky is working to smooth the way for companies to imbue their corporate charter with social good.
When Anand Kulkarni was birthing his new startup, Crowdbotics, nine months ago, he knew it had to be a public benefit corporation (PBC). He wanted the business to make money. But he also wanted to make sure the company’s workers, customers, and community would be treated fairly. By setting up as a PBC–a legal designation that requires businesses to do right by their stakeholders as well as their shareholders–he could set down a marker about Crowdbotics’s values, he says, and hopefully ensure those values could be maintained over time.
