Are you part of a team interested in forming your own co-op? Join us for the next cohort of Co-operate Now: Co-op Development Bootcamp for entrepreneurs and community members ready to build their co-op enterprise. The spring session plans to be a primarily in-person affair, hosted by our friends at the Upper Columbia Co-op Council in beautiful Nelson, BC from May 2-5, 2022!
Learn from co-op experts across the province covering all the basics needed to form a co-op, including co-op structures, feasibility analysis, capitalization, governance and management, marketing, legal and risk, and member engagement. Work with dedicated coaches and other emerging co-operators to help build out your team’s ownership and business canvases, and an action plan for incorporation.
Please contact Marla – firstname.lastname@example.org – for more information. Priority placement will be given to Kootenay-based and other rural teams, but exceptions will most certainly be entertained, so get in touch!
