Social entrepreneurship is alive and well in the Commonwealth of Virginia, as evidenced by the growing number of Virginia benefit corporations in existence (according to data from the State Corporation Commission).  Since the Virginia Stock Corporation Act was updated in 2011 to create the benefit corporation, approximately 60 benefit corporations have been formed under Virginia law.  Not too shabby, but plenty of room for growth.  If you’d like a complimentary copy of the Perkins Law Master List of Virginia Benefit Corporations, or would like to know more about benefit corporations and how they differ from traditional stock corporations, email or call anytime.
