Please join us for a special film screening of the documentary Prosperity, followed by a special Q&A discussion with the producer Pedram Shojai.

Prosperity is following a new generation of companies that are doing the right thing and deserve our attention (and money). There’s an emerging movement of “For Benefit” companies that are building into their bylaws the new ethics of conscious companies. In the old days, a CEO could be sued by the board if he/she didn’t maximize profits at any cost. Now, companies can elect to be “For Benefit” and factor in doing the right thing over just profits alone.

Our feature length movie is following the key players in this movement and showing a real positive way out of the mess we’ve inherited and helped co-create. The more we support this blossoming movement, the more money goes to people who care…people who will take a stand for our values and our environment.

We have our cameras on these heroes and are going to break some amazing news in the release of this movie. From CEOs of major public companies, to urban farmers, and remote tribes, we’re covering the whole story in a powerful narrative.
