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 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.
