  • Startup Fest June


    Our Start Up Together Fest is for those who are interested in starting a business where we guide entrepreneurs or those in the early stages of business formation closer to launching.

    Bring the person (or people) who are as interested or committed to starting a business together. Learn a new tool to assess your market and product or services. And get a chance to hear and give feedback to your peers about proposed business ideas. For all those who want to start a formal business with others, this is your window of opportunity. Check out what we've got planned:
    • Network and build relationships with other enterprisers.
    • Learn to use a tool to understand how viable your business idea could be.
    • Present your concept to the group - get feedback. We encourage entrepreneurs to have an idea already in mind.
    • Hear more on how we can set you up to turn your concept into a green business through our Co-op Academy. 
    • Participants are encouraged to bring others that are interested in being part of a worker-owned company, or someone you work with already. You should come with at least one other person but it is not required.


  • Celebrate New Co-ops
