Future Economies Reading Group: Raising Capital In Worker Cooperatives
February 23, 2021 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
This month the Future Economies Reading Group will investigate how worker-owned cooperatives can raise startup capital while maintaining full worker control. While capitalist corporations can raise capital by selling equity shares, cooperatives are owned and governed by their stakeholders–not by absentee shareholders.
We’ll look at case studies and real structures that cooperatives use in practice to raise funding. We will be joined by Daniel Fireside, most recently Capital Coordinator at the cooperative Equal Exchange.
