Massachusetts Benefit Corporations: New Opportunities for Entrepreneurship With a Conscience?
Thursday, December 13, 2012
12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA
Massachusetts has new benefit corporation legislation (Chapter 156E) that is
effective December 1, 2012. It permits a new form of for-profit business
corporation that has among its purposes creating a "general public benefit" but
with accountability, and therefore credibility, for doing so. This new
form of corporate entity is intended to provide a pathway toward socially
conscious entrepreneurship. Massachusetts corporate practitioners need to
understand the opportunities and pitfalls of this new entity and how it fits
with traditional corporate and non-corporate entities.
