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 a global community of 4,000 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.)
