Challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, inequality, shortage of food and other resources, plastic waste and many others. All these have to do with the survival of the human race and are of the highest urgency.

These challenges are historical, age-defining. Nobody can solve them alone

We believe that entrepreneurs are the key change-makers who should unite their forces, their creativity, their people and their industries in order to build a sustainable world. 

It is therefore our mission to build a strong global and interdependent network of entrepreneurial leaders who together can build this new world, the regenerative economy.


Over the coming 5 years we will build a strong global network of 30,000 + Leaders. These Leaders will form the B for Good Leaders Network.

Together they will meet, inspire each other, and create action driven programs to solve the challenges humanity face.

Our first step in building this Network was the Summit in Rome in 2022, where 750 inspired Leaders met and discussed five main topics. Resulting with the signing of a Declaration by all participants.

It is our Vision that over the coming 5-10 years, this Network is going to play a major global role in action driven changes, with the goal to improve the world.



  1. The purpose of this global network is to consolidate and professionalize an existing global, trust-based, community of 30,000 + entrepreneurial leaders in the next 3-5 years.

    Supporting each other, learning from each others experiences, collaborate, do regenerative business and advance the economy the world needs. An annual Summit, combined with regional events, will host a live audience of 1000+ Leaders and will facilitate the online attendance of thousands more.

  2. Lift enterprises towards a higher level of regenerative business by inspiring leaders/entrepreneurs to be more courageous, resilient and interdependent.

  3. Use B Corp Leaders as the model, while including the other B’s, such as B Team, B Academics, B Lawyers, B Investors. Throughout the year the community of Leaders will be offered a number of activities; curated connections, leadership circles and dinners, monthly webinars with extraordinary thinkers, book launches, lectures etcetera, in addition to the annual summit.


An innovative initiative calls for a driven team.



Finally, business for good is becoming the zeitgeist. It’s clear that business has to change and economies have to become regenerative. But who is taking the lead?

The Business for Good Leaders Summit is the world’s first meeting of the ‘business-for-good’ movement. Founders, owners, board members, C-Suite executives and investors came together to join forces. A multi day encounter to share projects, ventures and innovations. To create business opportunities and partnerships advancing the regenerative economy we need.


We have as our purpose the creation of a global Network of Leaders for Good. Over the period of 3-5 years we want to build a network of 30,000+ Leaders. Not only do we want to build this network, but the key lies in the actions, cooperations, business that this network creates.

Training, gatherings, Summits, webinars, trade missions, dinners and dealmakings will be, among others, essential in building an active network of which participant Leaders gain in their building a regenerative economy.

The Founders of B for Good Leaders realize that this magnificent job cannot be done alone and have decided to build a strong group of  Stewards, to guide this important process forward.

Our present economic system is flawed. It is guided by a short-term vision that only takes the interests of a limited number of stakeholders into account and is deaf to the call of future generations.

The annual B for Good Leaders Summit exists to accelerate the transition towards a regenerative economy creating the conditions for a shared, durable prosperity. This will create social, environmental, and economic net positive value through a new model of regenerative leadership.

As inhabitants of planet Earth, we take up this intergenerational call which demands to reframe the very meaning of leadership.

To enable this evolution, as B For Good Leaders, we commit to:

1. embrace radical interdependence, the fundamental principle governing life on Earth, as the golden rule for decision-making, leading to a regenerative impact;

2. consider at least the next generation of humans in every business decision;

3. measure what matters to integrate systemic value creation into our definition of profit;

4. challenge extractive economic models and take a stand for the common good;

5. mobilize finance as a catalyst to transform the business perspective from short-termism to long-term shared value creation.

We commit to guiding our companies and organizations to embrace a purpose-driven model that creates value for all.

Through this joint leadership statement, we lay the foundation for collective actions and alliances, clearing the path for a new regenerative economy.
