A 'for-benefit' corporation
The name "9b" says a lot about us in just two characters.
The number 9 is the rarest to occur as a leading digit in a given data set, according to Benford's Law. This theory is applied when analyzing the validity of financial records.
As for the "b," our company is a Certified B Corporation. A B Corp is a business that meets the "highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose."
While we are part of a global community of 4,500 businesses, we are one of three in Oklahoma to hold the certification from B Lab. The rigorous yet rewarding process took 15 months to complete, and we earned a verified score of 113.9! (The minimum is 80.)
As a Certified B Corp, 9b is empowered to use our business "as a force for good." Find information about the local organizations we support below.
