B Lab: 'Business as a force for good' on the Force.com Platform

Philadelphia, PA Developers Group
Wed, May 7, 2014, 6:00 PM (EDT)

About this Meeting

B Lab serves entrepreneurs who use the power of their business to address social and environmental challenges.  They support B Corporations - a new class of companies that aim to not only make money but also aim to 'use business as a force for good'. 

Hardik Savalia from B Lab will share how they use Salesforce.com Partner Portals and Communities to deploy the B Impact Assessment that helps businesses measure and manage their social and environmental impact. We'll also see how integrating Force.com with business intelligence tool GoodData delivers B Analytics to help investors, business associations, and governments manage the impact of the businesses they serve. 

Hardik Savalia works with B Lab, the non-profit that certifies and supports B Corporations, where he oversees the ratings team and process at B Lab.  Prior to joining B Lab, Savalia did a variety of work around developing business sustainability metrics, identifying green jobs, and preventing foreclosures in Philadelphia.
