Think Outside the Boss

Equity_Liberation_TOTB3.jpgThink Outside the Boss provides community members an introduction into the nuts and bolts of starting and running a cooperatively owned business. We go over legal issues in an accessible way to help you understand the relationships between cooperatives, employment, and community wealth-building.

Think Outside the Boss is presented by the Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) and the Green Collar Communities Clinic (GC3), a project of the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC).

Attorneys, law students, and experienced cooperative professionals give short presentations on legal issues, governance structures, financing, and more -- including resources and information on:

    • What is a worker-owned business?
    • What's the advantage of forming a cooperative business?
    • How do you run a business democratically?
    • How do you spread ownership and control across a group of people?
    • What's the tax and accounting issues in a cooperative?
    • How do you raise money from your members, your community, and even the bank?
    • What are the employment and labor laws about how to treat your workers?

Think Outside the Boss Manual!

Every paying participant of Think Outside the Boss receives a copy of the Think Outside the Boss Manual!
