As the Academy for Business in Society considers the theme “Business in Society: Measuring Impact and Creating Change,” one fundamental question emerges: how to collaborate with universities to create positive impact and sustainable business models. This paper offers a case study of the Honey Bee Initiative (HBI) from George Mason University’s School of Business. 

Authors Lisa Gring-Pemble and Germán Perilla discuss the Initiative’s tri-sector domestic and global partnerships, community-driven development approach and innovative solutions as an exemplar of business as a force for good.
