We often hear from folks who ask us how we can help them meet other entrepreneurs who might be right for starting a worker-owned business together. It takes at least two people to start a cooperative (otherwise you might just be in an 'operative.) We help teams of entrepreneurs launch their business through our training program called the Co-op Academy.
The Co-op Academy is a 5 month program to launch a business in under a year. It demystifies the startup process, and reduces time spent trying to figure out what customers actually want. And we do this all at no cost - free. Not everyone has partners to join in our Co-op Academy. To support the folks who are searching for others, and want to know more about worker cooperative businesses, we offer this event.
Part information session & part networking for folks interested in starting a small business, or in the early stages of formation.
- Come prepared to talk about your business idea, professional background, and share your contact info.
- Share relevant professional background and business goals, and learn about the same from others.
- Build relationships with others seeking to start similar businesses.
- If you have a partner or not, and are co-op-curious, come out and learn more.
Starting a new business can be a scary proposition. We can support you in making that happen without taking the risk alone and before you spend a dollar.
Turn your great idea into a real worker-owned business. Hit the ground running with a strong team and a solid plan. Give yourself the real training you need to start and stay in business.
You might not find love but you could find potential business partners around an idea.
