CT News Junkie – 13 Jan 2014

One company Woulfe knows that could benefit from a b-corp is Combat2Career. The company takes veterans and helps transition them from the military to civilian careers by matching them with higher education programs and civilian employers.

Woulfe said there are a lot of nonprofit organizations trying to do the same thing in the same space, so instead of competing with them for money, Combat2Career could be partnering with them to bring about positive change. With a b-corp, Combat2Career can still receive investment dollars and the founder can still own a piece of the company and help create more jobs, Woulfe said.
