Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers? By atopic eczema on 2014 07 22

Where are all the Colorado PBCs?

PBC's in other states include co’s like Patagonia + Method. Are they charities? NO. Are they companies that are good for American communities + the environment? YES. To suggest that for-profit businesses that care about how they treat key stakeholders might be required to file as a charity is chilling to businesses trying to do the right thing. In addition to fees + filings, it also would require a for-profit private company to disclose proprietary financials. In 25 other states, PBC legislation has been enacted without major implementation issues because these states understand that PBC status is a free market solution to entrepreneurs + businesses who want to use their business as a force for good in the world. Where are all the CO PBCs? They’re waiting for our state to get out of its own way and allow free market solutions to create a more vibrant economy and future for all of us.

Where are all the Colorado PBCs?

Thank you for asking this important question. We were among the organizations who worked over several years to get benefit corporation legislation passed in CO in 2013. We were aware of dozens of CO co’s ready to register on April 1, 2014 when the law went into effect. But once the SOS made it clear that it *might* subject PBC's to even greater scrutiny than originally contemplated in the legislation, these companies decided to hold off on electing PBC status – which is why its first day was a dud. The authors are right that such poor turnout is surprising in a state with so many mission-driven companies. NV in its first 4 months had 250 benefit corps! The CO SOS should embrace this corporate form instead of scaring away good companies. These values-based companies are good for Colorado jobs, workers, communities + the environment.

Where are all the Colorado PBCs?

PBC registration as CCSA hurts business, as private companies must disclose their revenue. The SOS doesn't understand PBCs, who are for-profits. They have morals or mission; they are not quasi nonprofits. Should the SOS’s require Walmart, who advertises they gives to communities, to register or a PBC that wants to buy parts from CO and not from China, need to register? DE, which has a PBC law, introd a CSA bill, but exempted PBCs. No other state treats benefit corps like the SOS, as a result there are nearly 1000 benefit corps nationally. The SOS should embrace this form that deregulates the purpose of a corp and frees up the market. Instead the SOS is increasing regulation on businesses they don't understand. The SOS applies the rules on a case-by-case basis, this creates confusion and harms the economic development enjoyed by other states. By Erik Trojian on 2014 07 22
