When the word "corporation" comes up, a lot of us think of a big company with profit as the only goal.

But there's a new type of corporation that wants to create a positive impact on society, called a a "Benefit Corporation."

There's been some talk in the Twin Cities and in the legislature about B Corps.

KSTP sat down with David Reiling, CEO of Sunrise Banks, to discuss the impact of these companies.
