Starting a cooperative business

Looking to start a business? Join us for Co-ops 101 this summer!
Cycleworks cooperative

Worker cooperatives in Madison include wellness businesses, engineering and manufacturing, a taxi company, a bakery, a CBD processor, and home care for the elderly, among many others.


Worker cooperative members

Come and learn about a values-driven business model that puts worker and community benefit at the core of its purpose. Worker cooperatives are democratic workplaces that are owned and managed by their workers, who share in the enterprise's profits.
