On May 3, Rocky Mountain Employee Ownership Center is hosting a practical workshop on “Ownership Culture: The Secret Sauce for Success,” part of National Small Business Week. Learn more on Facebook.

At next month’s Boulder Startup week, Nathan will be joined by Jason and Corey Kohn of the brand-new worker co-op dojo4 in a discussion on May 18 called “Startup.coop: How to build a real sharing economy through shared ownership.” Spread the news via our website, the BSW website, and Facebook.

Our website’s directory of Colorado co-ops has just nearly quadrupled in size, thanks to the data from the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union. Check it out—is your co-op listed correctly there?
