Celebrating Good Business in Colorado!
Join B Lab, the Alliance Center, and Best for Colorado Partners for an evening of celebration and inspiration with the companies and leaders who are distinguished as not only the best IN Colorado but the best FOR Colorado. We’ll celebrate our 2017 Best for Colorado Honorees and participants, Colorado’s B Corp leaders, especially our “Best for the World” B Corps, and the over 1000+ companies that have elected Colorado public benefit corporation legal status.
Get ready for a night of music, food, and drinks, in the good company of civic, non-profit, academic and business leaders from across the state. Let's celebrate those who are using the power of business to work for a healthier, more equitable, and resilient future for all Coloradans!
