Introduction to Cooperative & Employee Owned Business Development
March 11, 2015 @ 1:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Sponsored by Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation and The Mel King Institute
What is a worker cooperative, a consumer co-op, a democratic enterprise? Learn how business development organizations can use this exciting business model to support the creation of firms that root capital locally within a community. This one-day workshop will introduce participants to the ideas behind cooperative businesses, explore the cooperative landscape in Massachusetts, and introduce how business development groups already working in the small business arena can add worker and community ownership to their set of tools.
