They are true collaborators, not only with Mighty Epiphyte to serve our social enterprise entrepreneurs, also with the Secretary of State’s office in Oregon to become the go to third-party Certifiers for becoming Oregon Benefit Corporation for Good!  Mighty Epiphyte is dedicated to helping Tom and Mary Anne with their mission, we support each other with Connections and Catalyzing Change for good.  Check out their new book Putting the Soul into Business, How the Benefit Corporation is Transforming American Business for Good.  This is a terrific reference to learn the difference between certifications, what it means to have a third-party certification and why there is a difference between certification and CSR.   You’ll realize the value of certification after understanding the why’s from their research.  My copy is a dog-eared treasure!
