Co-ops 101 - How Social Enterprise can use the Co-op business Model (Kitchener-Waterloo)

  • 200 King Street West Kitchener, ON, N2G 4V6 Canada (map)

The Co-operative business model works on the Triple Bottom Line – People, Planet and Profits. It is the best model for Social Enterprises to put their values into practice.  Co-operatives are democratic businesses that put the power back in the hands of employees, producers, consumers and/ or community members. There are co-op businesses in virtually every business category including retail, housing, agriculture, social services, renewable energy, health, finance and IT.

This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of the co-operative model including start-up, incorporation, and financing.  Several local successful co-operative businesses will be featured. 

Come learn how co-operatives are building a better world!
