Fundraising for the new cohort of Green Worker Cooperatives

The Next Wave of Co-ops are here! 

The Spring semester of the Coop Academy, our business boot camp for cooperative start-ups, is less than a month away. But before any of the four teams of aspiring cooperative entrepreneurs are able to benefit from the aggressive combination of training, coaching, and technical services such as legal incorporation, graphic design, and website development, first they have to fundraise for their course registration fee ($550 per team member).
It’s their first assignment as a team. We request you donate to one, several or all of these start-up cooperatives. Your donation is their access to training and resources, a network of support, and of course … success. Think of it as an investment in the creation of the economy you’ve always dreamed of.

Make a donation today … then tell your friends.

The Next Wave
