2019 Champions Retreat

About the Retreat



You are invited to join together with the B Corp Community at the 11th annual Champions Retreat to connect, learn, and get inspired at the Loews Hollywood Hotel. The Retreat gathers leaders of the B Corp movement across the United States and Canada, including Certified B Corps, future B Corps, social impact organizations, and other members of the B Economy to work together to create better workplaces and a more inclusive economy.

Champions Retreat is the best time to connect with fellow B Corps, social impact organizations and members of the B Economy, one-on-one and collectively as a movement. Our community is diverse, but we are united in a collective vision of a shared and durable prosperity. No matter where your role falls in the B Economy, anyone who is using business as a force for good is invited and welcome to our Champions Retreat.  

We hope to see you there.

“I feel that this was one of the best conferences I have been to. The people were all very outgoing, personable and wanted to connect. The attendees made me feel very included and genuine and I feel like I can honestly reach out to anyone that I met to collaborate, innovate and connect in a meaningful and genuine way.”

“I am so impressed with not just the breadth but the depth of this community. Many people I met randomly on the bus, at a table, or in passing were doing truly amazing work and had remarkable skills and insights.
