Tuesday, Jun 18, 2024, 6:30pm to 8:30pm

From crowdfunding to loans, learn about unique funding opportunities for starting a worker cooperative.

In contrast to traditional companies, worker members at worker cooperatives participate in the profits, oversight, and often management of the enterprise using democratic practices.
