Investing in Purpose: PosiGen’s Journey to B Corp Certification Post Impact Investment

Amelia Ahl The Builders Fund

PosiGen is the nation’s leading residential solar and energy efficiency provider for working families, helping customers save more than $190M on their utility bills to date. After completing a Series D investment led by Builders Fund and a growth capital round from Builders and other investors in 2022, PosiGen became a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) and Certified B Corp in 2023.

The Builders Fund, which partners with growth-stage companies whose fundamental business models directly address environmental and social challenges, has been a certified B Corp since 2015. Builders provided PosiGen with guidance and support throughout the B Corp certification process in alignment with the fund’s impact management and measurement strategy.

Join this session to learn about the rationale, challenges, and benefits of the B Corp certification from the investor and operator perspectives. The panel will discuss PosiGen’s journey to certification and how impact investors can leverage the B Impact Assessment and B Corp certification throughout the investment lifecycle to understand and deepen impact, improve transparency, and create value.
