NOW Partners at B Corp Summit Poland

Pleased to participate in the First B Corp Summit in Warsaw, Poland as a strategic partner alongside B Lab Europe, to BETTER, who designed and facilitated the summit.

About the Summit:

“Our ambition is to gather together companies and leaders who are aware of the negative effects of the old paradigm of doing business as usual and are sharing demand to change it. We need “to fix the world in 10 years”, and this is the message we want to broadcast together with like-minded business leaders.”

We need to start making the change at our doorstep, in our organizations, companies, neighborhoods. We need to work for reinventing the capitalism into the new system, caring for all stakeholders, regenerative, inclusive, resilient, embracing ALL forms of life on our planet.

Pawel Nizinski, partner at NOW Partners, B Corp Market Explorer, CEO/Managing Partner of BETTER says, “To continue the journey through the Universe we must fix all the screws and change the way we navigate. That means learning from the best practices, creating relevant solutions, acting more – debating less. There are only 10 years left. Let’s do it!”

Among the speakers and facilitators from NOW Partners that participated in the summit were: Tom Cummings, Sandrine Dixson-Decleve, Shiva Dustdar, Walter Link, Hunter Lovins, Chris Marquis, Andy Middleton, Pawel Nizinski, Marcello Palazzi, Renske van Grinsven, and Moneshia zu Eltz.
