Green Business. Worker-Owned. Doers Wanted.

 

Join us on November 17th from 2-7pm for our second annual Social Justice Holiday Market located at Sweet Water Dance & Yoga (876 Gerard Avenue, 2nd Floor | Bronx, NY 10452).

This event is FREE and open to all ages.

Last year we had 30+ vendors and 250+ shoppers who left with so many treats for themselves and their communities. This year we are excited to be doing it again and create a space that centers community, social justice, collective solidarity; and support small, local businesses & worker-owned cooperatives.

We will have a variety of vendors who will share a variety of goods & services, as well as some of the ways they're working to heal and dismantle currently oppressive systems. Check out our Instagram @greenworkercooperatives for featured vendors coming soon!

    Go beyond the boss.

    Come learn about Green Worker Cooperatives, and how our Co-op Academy can help you start a business.

    Visit our office (where we host the Co-op Academy) and meet with our staff, as well as some current participants in the Co-op Academy and members of co-ops. 

    In collaboration with BOCNET BXL Business Incubator, we will give a presentation and a tour of the space. This is also a networking event to meet new people. 

    We have a 5 month Co-op Academy that begins February 2020. It's a free course for folks who have at least one other partner, to get coaching, access to start up funds, and legal support to launch your business. We do all this for free. Yes. FREE.

    This is for individuals interested in starting a small business or those who are in the early stages of business formation.

    In partnership with NYCHA's Resident Economic Empowerment & Sustainability program, we are co-hosting a workshop on how our Co-op Academy can help you start a business.

    We help people start worker cooperatives, which are businesses that workers control together, giving more choices over their work and the rights to the profits. 

    This is for individuals and groups interested in starting a business or those who are already in the early stages of business formation. 

    Our five month Co-op Academy begins February 2020. Learn how you can apply for the program. Applicants accepted into the program receive:

    • Over 60 hours of training by skilled experts
    • One-on-one mentoring with a successful entrepreneur
    • Legal assistance with business incorporation and structuring
    • Training and support in fundraising
    • Peer-support network beyond the course 
    • Greater visibility and name recognition for your cooperative
    • And much more….

    Learn about this intensive 5-month long training and support program that helps teams of aspiring entrepreneurs develop worker-owned businesses.
