Are you interested in starting a worker-owned cooperative, or converting an existing business to worker-ownership? Curious about cooperatives and how they really function in everyday practice? Looking for ways to build and strengthen a cooperative ecosystem in your city? Our Worker Cooperative Jumpstart is for YOU.

Organized by a group of longtime worker-owners and ecosystem allies, CommonBound's Worker Cooperative Jumpstart is a hands-on opportunity to get started on the cooperative path, or to expand your knowledge and understanding, and learn best practices for your existing worker cooperative. We welcome active worker owners looking to learn more, community members looking to bring cooperative development to their neighborhoods, aspiring worker-owners, and everyone else! Come alone, or bring a team!
Learn about why workers choose cooperative ownership structures; how cooperatives impact the racial wealth divide; how your early structure choices impact your cooperative's ability to thrive; how to start, organize, grow, and maintain your cooperative enterprise; and how to finance your path forward ... and more!

Coordinator: Kate Khatib (Red Emma’s Cooperative), Ro McIntyre (Baltimore Roundtable for Economic Democracy), Brendan Martin (The Working World), Jim Johnson (Democracy at Work Network), Parag Khandhar (Baltimore Roundtable for Economic Democracy), Bernardo Vigil (Baltimore Bicycle Works), Joseph Cureton (CORE Staffing), John Duda (The Democracy Collaborative)
