Who’s Who Of Social Enterprises Registers As Benefit Corps. In Delaware

Monday, August 5, 2013

Recently, I wrote about American Prison Data Systems, a New York City social enterprise that seeks to improve the education of prison inmates using a tablet-based platform. Turns out, it was one of the 17 businesses that just registered as the first Benefit Corporations in Delaware.

APDS joins quite a who’s who of social enterprises, ranging from organic cleaning products sellerMethod and sustainable printerNew Leaf Paper to RSF Social Finance’s RSF Capital Management, and organic baby food maker Plum Organics , that just registered in that state.

Other companies include Alter Eco, Better Than We Found It, Exemplar Companies, Fair Parenting Project, Farmigo, Grassroots Capital Management, Ian Martin Group, Imani Energy, Plexx, Profile Health Systems, Socratic Labs, and Venture Pilot. Companies committed to register include Performance Management, GOOD Worldwide, Honest Company (that’s the organic baby-products company co-founded by actress Jessica Alba I covered a few months ago), Roozt, and SustainAbility.
