On Tuesday, April 10, 2018, the Fowler Center hosted a Business as an Agent of World Benefit Green Bag Lunch attended by students, staff and community members. Our special guest was Lorraine Schuchart, Founder of Prosper for Purpose, a Cleveland-based firm and one of 17 Ohio Certified B Corps. Prosper for Purpose was founded in 2012 and became a Certified B Corp in 2016. Senior Director Katherine Gullett and Operations Manager, AIM2Flourish, Megan Buchter shared a brief presentation on the Fowler Center and AIM2Flourish. Schuchart then shared her story of becoming a Certified B Corp and her vision for a thriving Northeast Ohio and many more Certified B Corps in the region. Participants engaged in a lively discussion about the B Corp movement and community, the path becoming a Certified B Corp, and the hope that businesses will soon be able to incorporate in Ohio as Registered B Corps.
