What is B Corp and what does it yield?
What does B Corp mean and why is becoming a B Corp a big goal for StartDock?
The answer to “the” question
It is customary in our society to ask each other "How are you"? When you are an entrepreneur, that question is often accompanied by a question about 'your baby'. "How are you, and how is it at StartDock"? In this time of Corona, not a day goes by that the question is accompanied with an attached assumption: "Gee, how are you and StartDock, you're going to have a hard time"? I would like to give you a glimpse into my head and into our company, as the ultimate manager at StartDock during Corona.
