ChangeMatters, Benefit LLC will release findings from the first survey and report on Benefit Corporation and LLC activity in Maryland since new laws defining socially-responsible and environmentally-sustainable companies went into effect. Research was conducted during the 2012 Fall semester by an MBA team at the Robert H. Smith School of Business’s Center for Social Value Creation at University of Maryland as part of the Smith Experience. The release of findings will be followed by a working session of entrepreneurs, advisors, and impact investors to explore next steps for promoting and scaling “common good enterprise” activity in the region.
