The new additions from B | 23 makes Cornwall the largest cluster of B Corps outside of London. Every single business that has taken part is in a better place for the tools and skills they have acquired. They are also part of a new network of values-aligned businesses across Cornwall, facilitating future support, collaboration and growth. This will have a positive impact, not only on the organisation, but on the community as a whole.
With the success of the programme, B Lab UK are exploring using B | 23 as a blueprint for similar programmes elsewhere, further amplifying its positive impact.

Being supported and mentored through the process has been really valuable to us. Having people that have done it before but also people who are on the journey to share the information, to share the problems and help solve them together — that kind of collaborative effort has been really good.
