B Lab: 'Business as a force for good' on the Force.com Platform

  • May 7, 2014 · 6:00 PM

B Lab serves entrepreneurs who use the power of their business to address social and environmental challenges.  They support B Corporations - a new class of companies that aim to not only make money but also aim to 'use business as a force for good'. 

Hardik Savalia from B Lab will share how they use Salesforce.com Partner Portals and Communities to deploy the B Impact Assessment that helps businesses measure and manage their social and environmental impact. We'll also see how integrating Force.com with business intelligence tool GoodData delivers B Analytics to help investors, business associations, and governments manage the impact of the businesses they serve. 

Hardik Savalia works with B Lab, the non-profit that certifies and supports B Corporations, where he oversees the ratings team and process at B Lab.  Prior to joining B Lab, Savalia did a variety of work around developing business sustainability metrics, identifying green jobs, and preventing foreclosures in Philadelphia.

Food and drink is being sponsored by our hosts at B Labs, and there will be time for informal networking before and after the talk:

6:00pm - 6:30pm Food & networking
6:30pm - 6:45pm Welcome & introductions
6:45pm - 7:45pm Presentation
7:45pm - 8:00pm Networking
8:00pm - Drinks nearby

    Thanks to Hardik and Beth for hosting us in a nice "living room" discussion of the many facets of the non-profit and Salesforce worlds!

    If you'd like to see B Lab's Saleforce app in action and see how your own company measures in social good, here's their free assessment tool:

    Sorry I can't make it tonight! Going to the Sustainable Business Network's "Meet the Universities" member event. It's nice (and unfortunate) to have TWO sustainable business events to choose from in one night. Wow.

      We've been experimenting with a few Meetup features to get more accurate RSVP counts for our hosts and sponsors, Jessica. It looks like Hardik has added you to the list, so we'll see you there!

    Hi all, Looking forward to having you here tomorrow. One logistical note: The entrance to our office is on a side street off Lancaster Ave called Waynewood. It is directly above Customers Bank and adjacent to the Wayne Hotel. The parking lot behind the mainstreet has stairs that lead up to the office. If you have trouble finding us, please dial me: [masked]-0299. Cheers, Hardik
