We have a 5 month Co-op Academy that begins in early 2019. It's a course for folks who have at least one other partner, and a business idea, to start your business from the inside out. All at no cost to you, free.
We call it a "boot camp" for cooperative startups. You get broad services such as one-on-one coaching, a mentor in your industry, access to legal services and fair financial services for loans. Learn how to get, keep, and grow your customer segment, decision making structure of worker co-ops, financial projections, and a lot more we go over at our Info Sessions. During the course we also provide simultaneous translation for Spanish speakers and childcare. Come to hear more about it!
*Bronx residents, NYCHA residents, and Green City Force participants attending this open house are prioritized for our Co-op Academy. But, yes, we are open to anyone in the five boroughs.
