About Jay Coen Gilbert: Jay is cofounder of B Lab, a nonprofit organization that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good. Its vision is that one day all companies compete not only to be the best in the world, but the best for the world, and as a result society will enjoy a more shared and durable prosperity.

B Lab drives this systemic change by:

1) building a global community of Certified B Corporations;

2) promoting Benefit Corporation Governance to align the interests of business with those of society and to help high impact businesses be built to last;

3) promoting the B Impact Assessment and B Analytics to help businesses, investors, and institutions manage their impact with as much rigor as their profits;

and 4) inspiring millions to join the movement through its B the Change storytelling platform on Medium.

As of October 2017, there are more than 2,300 Certified B Corporations from over 130 industries and 50 countries; more than 4,500 businesses have registered as benefit corporations in the 35 states and countries that have enacted benefit corporation laws; more than 15,000 businesses manage their impact using the B Impact Assessment; and more than 150 investors, fund managers, and institutions with billions of dollars in assets under management are using the B Analytics data platform to understand and report on the impact of the companies in whom they invest and with whom they work; and more than 200 universities around the world are teaching about the B Corp movement.
