Did you feel that..?

That was what members of the Delaware Bar and Court of Chancery called a 'seismic shift' in U.S. corporate law when yesterday Delaware Governor Jack Markell enacted benefit corporation legislation.

signed bill

Delaware is the 18th state (plus D.C.!) to pass benefit corp legislation, but the one that matters most to business leaders and investors who seek access to venture capital, private equity, and public capital markets.  Building a global movement to redefine success in business requires capital for those businesses to scale.  Delaware is a big step toward achieving our collective vision.

A huge thank you to all whose ideas and hard work made this historic moment possible.
