The First European B Corp Summer Summit

DATE: June 30th - July 1st in Rome

This first European B Corp Summer Summit is a celebration for People Using Business as a Force for Good. We have a powerful opportunity to tap the knowledge and experience of our European B Corp network and strengthen our individual businesses, our community, and collective impact. B Lab Europe and Nativa invite all employees of B Corps to join us for two days of community reflection, learning, and sharing.

With a combination of keynotes, dynamic workshops, and community building, we aim to create a new level of inspiration and clarity guiding this new year in which to B The Change. We will also explore topics and themes that will provide fresh insights and help make you and the B Corp movement more impactful. Some of these topics include sustainable finance, supply chain management, leadership development, and marketing amongst others.


B Corps from across Europe will be attending as well as a few from further distances (North and South America and Asia). That means that you can learn from, connect with and build together with some of the most innovative and exciting companies in Europe. On the second day, we will also be inviting local business leaders, government officials, nonprofits, the media and members of the general public to learn from and witness this incredible community.
