What we're about

We meet to help one another explore, form, join, or improve businesses without bosses: worker cooperatives.

Join us if you are interested in working for yourself but not working alone— nor in being someone else's boss.

This group is a regular show and tell for freedom-seeking employees, creatives, freelancers, business owners, jobless individuals, and entrepreneurs wanting to learn about and share work experiences applicable to working in a shared-ownership model. Those of us in worker cooperatives and collectives share our experiences and challenges and discuss ways to make our businesses and our lives better.

Worker cooperatives are businesses owned and controlled by the people who work in them. They are a time-tested way to create quality jobs, and are gaining momentum as a strategy to build and anchor wealth in communities.
