The Co-op Academy is a holistic cooperative entrepreneurship training and mentorship program with an emphasis on creating sustainable, member-owned businesses.
Using curriculum developed with partners around the region and an outgrowth of proven, successful models for co-op incubation, Worcester Roots holds an intensive 10 week co-op incubation program each fall. Services and resources provided include: one-on-one followup and mentorship, connections to networks of co-ops and co-op funders, know-how and expert advice on the nuts and bolts of co-op development.
The next Co-op Academy begins September 2018. More info soon.
20 participants completed the Worcester Co-op Business Academy this year and have created a strong cohort of cooperative entrepreneurs to support each other going forward. Here are the participants and a tabulation of the results of the Academy.
