Last year, I posted a discussion about for-profit vs non-profit status
and got some great responses and met some great people here. One of the ideas in that thread was to form as a "B" corp, which I'm now starting to consider more seriously, because I think as a community based organization, it would help my credibility with my target audience, but not be as restrictive as a 501c3 non profit.
I would like to know if anyone has gone through the process of getting accredited specifically as a California "B" corporation and what were the pros and cons of that choice, and also if you can point to online resources that might be able to help me learn more.
For example. I know that you can often get free or discounted software and services as a 501c3 non-profit. Has anyone also received benefits like this from being a "B" corp?
