Jay Coen Gilbert shares his vision to harness the power of business to solve society's problems through B Corporations -- a new standard labeling socially and environmentally responsible companies. B Corps will help corporations be profitable while solving society's problems.
Coen Gilbert co-founded B Lab, an organization trying to solve social and environmental problems by relying on the power of B Corporations, businesses certified to have sustainable values.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPhilly, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxPhilly event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
