More States Moving Towards Integrated Corporate Statutes

For those keeping track, several new states have recently introduced legislation providing for integrated corporate structures for social entrepreneurs, with the most recent announcement coming today in a watershed moment as Delaware, the "grand-daddy" of the corporate bar, announced the introduction of legislation for a Public Benefit Corporation.

Delaware's proposed legislation looks a good deal like the California Flexible Purpose Corporation, rather than the Benefit Corporation option being pushed by my friends at B Labs.  (Colorado has also introduced legislation that looks more similar to the Flexible Purpose Corporation than the Benefit Corporation, Washington has already passed legislation modeled on the Flexible Purpose Corporation, and a number of states are considering options similar to the California model.)

Of course, the Benefit Corporation model is also progressing in a number of states.

So what's an entrepreneur to do?

Stay tuned for an FAQ roadmap for entreprenuers, coming soon to this blog near you!
