Impact Hub is busily preparing for our Summer Interns 4 Impact Program – Interns for Impact is a program for members of Impact Hub Minneapolis St. Paul that connects students from local schools with socially-oriented small businesses. Through this program, both the business and interns receive extra support and educational opportunities. This month we hosted a workshop on How to Work with Interns.  Learn more about Interns 4 Impact here and fill out this interest form if you would like to get involved.

The Difference Between B Corps & Public Benefit Corporations with MN B Local

Have you always wondered about the difference between B Corps and Public Benefit Corporations? This is one of the top questions we get at Impact Hub. This month, in partnership with B Local Minnesota, we hosted a great event that answered that very question! We were lucky to learn about B Corps and Public Benefit Corporations from Kimberly Lowe, CFO at Avisen Legal, and Steve Simon, MN Secretary of State.
