Join us for an upcoming meeting!

February: 2/21 at 5:30-7:00 pm – “Not Business as Usual” film screening and discussion @ Nazareth College – Room 1921 in Shults Building (up the stairs next to the information desk)

The traditional form of capitalism is putting a product or service to the market and making money. However, some businesspeople contemplate that real entrepreneurship is to figure out how the world is better off because of your product or service and bring that into the marketplace. Challenging the notion that the purpose of a corporation is to maximize shareholder value, learn about the forces driving Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainability, B Corps and Conscious Capitalism. For our February meeting, we’ll watch an hour-long documentary “Not Business as Usual” followed by a discussion about what we can learn from the film to apply in our businesses and our lives.  Watch the trailer here and RSVP here!

March: 3/21 at 5:30-7:00 pm – Market Driven Community Corporation

The City’s Office of Innovation has been coordinating a project to develop worker-owned cooperative businesses as part of a comprehensive wealth building strategy. Mayor Warren calls it a “Stairway out of poverty.” The Market Driven Community Corp. will help co-ops get started with market analysis and business planning. Join us to learn more about the MDCC from Henry Fitts, head of the Mayor’s Office of Innovation.
