Everything You Need to Know About Coops

Got a great idea for a new business? Do you dream of starting an equitable, inclusive, and empowering business environment? Then a co‑op could be the perfect business model for you. 

A co-op is a workers-owned business where its members meet their shared needs and have a say in how the business is run. In this one-hour webinar, you will get a complete overview and learn more about co‑ops, its benefits, and how to get your co‑op business off the ground. 

Please join us online (Zoom) for free. In this webinar, offered by Empowered Women International, you will get a complete overview and learn about:   

  • What is a co-op? 
  • Types of co-op 
  • Co-op legal structures  
  • Access to Capital 
  • Pros and Cons of starting a co-op 
  • And more! 


PRESENTED BY BRED: Baltimore Roundtable for Economic Democracy (BRED) helps worker coops in the greater Baltimore area get the capital they need to start and grow. Our non-extractive lending process helps prioritize inclusion and equity rather than locking communities out of the funding they need to start owning their economy. By combining the financing we offer with technical assistance and cooperative mentoring, we can support worker-owned businesses and give them a chance to thrive.
