Intro to co-ops for economic developers

By Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (other events)

Wednesday, January 24 2018 9:30 AM 11:00 AM

The Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (PACA) is hosting a workshop for people who are considering developing cooperatively owned businesses as a means to combat poverty, promote economic development, and build a more just and equitable economy. In the workshop we’ll cover the basics about the different kinds of co-ops, and we’ll dig into some of the different approaches that are used to develop co-ops at scale. This is a great opportunity for you and your organization to plug into the exciting co-op development work happening in Philadelphia. 

Can't make it on January 24th, but still want to attend a workshop? PACA will offer this same workshop again in March, and a more advanced workshop in February and April. Go ahead and sign up for those below.
