The NYC Coop Training Collective

A new economy based on values of justice, sustainability and democracy is growing while inequality continues to soar. Access to good work becomes ever more precarious, and sustainability hangs in the balance. We have an increasingly urgent need to own and control our own livelihoods. It is within this context that the cooperative business model has been growing exponentially in NYC and presents opportunities for individuals, businesses, industries, institutions and communities to create and cultivate just and sustainable economies.  

The Training Collective can serve anyone, from those launching a new business with friends, to those reimagining an existing business to a new structure of ownership and management, to those helping others to help themselves with effective and cooperative entrepreneurship.  

We currently offer the following eight (8) workshops, and can be customized to fit your needs. Each workshop is 2 to 3 hours. Workshops are available in English and Spanish, virtual or potentially in person. The workshops work well together as a series or as stand-alones.
