B Corp

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.

B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp community are embedded in the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.

Better Meetings

Better Meetings is your home away from home. Right in the middle of the forest. Host a workshop in the living room. Facilitate a training in the attic. Doodle straight onto the table during a brainstorm session. Or have a team meeting amid African atmospheres. This is just 'another day at the office' for us.

The spaces are amazing, and the food is delicious too. Social chefs Jurriaan and Tom prepare all the meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) together with a group of kids following an internship as part of their special education programme. They work together as a team, in the kitchen and help around the venue.

In cooperation with the teachers of the affiliated educational institution Heuvelrug College in Zeist, the kids receive proper care and guidance to develop their skills and confidence, to gain experience in the workplace. 

GoodUp

GoodUp is a social enterprise that helps organisations activate their purpose within their employees. There's a huge gap between purpose strategy and execution. 86% of companies have a purpose statement, but the majority (83%) haven't considered what this means across departments or set clear team targets. 

GoodUp helps organisations bridge this gap. Their SaaS marketplace matches employees’ personal purpose with the company purpose through projects that create societal impact. GoodUp is the only technology provider with a scalable solution that embeds purpose within an organisation.

Buzz Women

Millions of women and their families still live in poverty. In many cases, it's caused by low income, endless debt and lack of access to education and economic opportunities. In a world where patriarchal systems still exist, many women lead lives focused on serving others. Not getting the chance to develop their own talents and create their own future.

We believe that (access to) education is crucial to becoming self-reliant and pursuing a better life. Buzz Women enables women to change their own circumstances, so they can break the vicious cycle of poverty!
