"Contributing to the B23 programme as a B Guide was a great experience to work closely with a few Cornish companies and build local connections. B23 has provided ideas for building a place-based approach that can be replicated elsewhere to boost the number of companies in the UK B Corp community in under-represented areas, such as the North of England, Wales and Northern Ireland."
