While StoryStudio Chicago has always been committed to growing and sustaining our local community, in January 2013 we furthered this mission by becoming a Certified B Corporation, while also registering as one of the first State of Illinois Benefit Corporations.

What is a B Corp?
Essentially, being a B Corp means we are “Using Business as a Force for Good.” Plain and simple.
To gain the B Corp certification, for-profit enterprise must complete a thorough and wide-ranging assessment–essentially a framework for running a smart, responsible business poised for growth.
At StoryStudio we focus on increasing our community involvement by working with local teaching artists, authors, and writers. We partner with local non-profit organizations and other social impact businesses. In fact, in April 2015 StoryStudio Chicago was named a B Corp Best for the World-Community honoree.
