Branching Minds, a leading K12 educational technology company, announced today that it has earned recertification as a B Corp. Branching Minds received an overall impact score of 130, making it the highest-scoring company across the educational support industry globally.
Certified B Corporations (B Corps) are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. Branching Minds has been certified as a B Corporation since 2015.

To maintain B Corp status, companies are required to undergo a rigorous third-party assessment by the non-profit B-Lab, to ensure that they are continuing to meet verified high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
Branching Minds’ overall impact score increased by 47% since the last recertification, demonstrating the company’s deep commitment to growth and excellence across each of the five areas evaluated by the B-Impact Assessment: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers.
“The spike in our overall score is a reflection of Branching Minds’ deep commitment to continuous improvement, and a business-strategy that is obsessively focused on mission,” says David Magier, COO and Co-Founder. “We are particularly proud that our score in the customer domain increased by 102% since our last recertification, reflecting our excellent stewardship of customers, the quality of our products and services, and the strength of our data and privacy practices”.
