Event Details

What is a worker owned business? How do you start one?

Join the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC), the Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC), and Communities for a Better Environment (CBE) as we explore the connections between environmental justice, resiliency and worker-owned business development.

You should come to this workshop if you are interested in creating a worker-owned business in your community or if you are a non-profit organization interested in incubating worker-owned businesses.

10:45am - 11:00am - Registration

11:00am - 3:00pm - Workshop

You'll learn about the following:

- what worker-owned businesses are and the advantage of forming one,

- how to convert a traditional business to a worker-owned business,

- how to run your business democratically,

- how to spread ownership and control across a group of people,

- what is tax and accounting in a cooperative?

- how to raise money from your collective, your community, and even the bank!

- laws about how to treat your workers

- and more!

Networking opportunity!

There will also be an opportunity for networking with groups that will connect you with real worker-owners, financial institutions, and resources for worker cooperatives.

We will be giving a manual on "How to Start a Worker-Owned Business" to the first 60 attendees!

Free follow-up legal consultation!

After the workshop we will hold two follow-up legal clinics for workshop attendees seeking to start or incubate worker-owned businesses. If you are interested, fill out an application at the workshop!
