Hello amazing cooperators! We wanted to let you know that we’ll be hosting a teach-in based on feedback from the worker cooperative community in the Bay Area. We’ve sent a request for ideas to our friend in the Network of Bay Area Worker Cooperatives community and will update this event page as soon as we hear what legal challenges they’d like to learn more about!
We’ll also be joined by a Kieron Slaughter, Chief Community Development Officer at the City of Berkeley’s Office of Economic Development, to share how Berkeley businesses can access the Berkeley Revolving Loan Fund, particularly in light of the coop-friendly amendments that went into effect in 2020 and the influx of CARES-funded no/low-interest loans (so exciting!).
We’d like to thank the City of Berkeley for sponsoring this event and making more resources available to grow the cooperative economy in Berkeley!
If you are an entrepreneur, a business owner thinking about succession planning or transitioning to an employee owned company, or a worker coop with worker-members or candidates looking to skill up (Principle 5!), this training is for you!
ASL interpretation will be provided.
