Today, B Revolution announced the launch of ezBcorp, the first one-stop online resource for B Corporation legal formation, certification, and sustainable business growth services. Designed for entrepreneurs seeking to build mission-driven ventures, ezBcorp provides comprehensive solutions for startups and small businesses seeking to form, certify, and scale their enterprises.

B Revolution founder Dirk Sampselle sees the B Corporation movement as a logical outgrowth of the new ethos in business: “The B Corporation business architecture allows entrepreneurs to compete in the 21st century, where customers, employees, and investors demand socially and environmentally responsible behavior. In this new environment, the B Corporation structure serves as a source of competitive advantage that empowers entrepreneurs to pursue purpose alongside profit."

Since 2007, companies like Patagonia, Seventh Generation, Ben & Jerry's, and Warby Parker have adopted the B Corporation certification in order to differentiate themselves as companies that pursue the highest standards of ethical accountability. The B Corporation legal structure provides mission protection and accountability, while the B Corporation certification provides third-party validation of ethical business practices. In July 2013, Delaware, home to 64% of the Fortune 500 companies, became the nineteenth state to enact benefit corporation legislation.

B Revolution has been helping companies adopt the B Corporation certification and legal structure since 2011, when Sampselle completed his work drafting B Lab’s White Paper on Benefit Corporations. Sampselle developed ezBcorp to extend his formation, certification, and capitalization services to startups and small businesses. “My aim with ezBcorp is to make the process and our expertise more accessible and affordable. Kind of like a Legal Zoom for B Corps, but far more comprehensive, targeted, and mission-aligned in approach.”

As a drafting author of the benefit corporation legislative memorandum used to advocate for the legal entity in state legislatures, Sampselle is a nationally-recognized expert in B Corporation legal and business strategy. Sampselle’s US-based consultancy assists businesses with adopting the B Corporation certification and legal structure, integrating sustainability and social responsibility into their competitive strategy, and helping to pair investors with B Corporation ventures.
