Kickstarter Is Now A Benefit Corporation

Kickstarter is now a benefit corporation. What is a benefit corporation you ask? This is how Kickstarter explains it:

Benefit Corporations are for-profit companies that are obligated to consider the impact of their decisions on society, not only shareholders. Radically, positive impact on society becomes part of a Benefit Corporation’s legally defined goals. When a company becomes a Benefit Corporation, it can choose to make further commitments. In our new charter (shown below) we spell out our mission, our values, and the commitments we have made to pursue them.
