Welcome to this tutorial on starting a cooperatively owned enterprise. (Click image to download.)
This guide will likely be most useful for groups seeking to start a co-op with members being consumers of a product or service OR as producers of a product or service (including worker owners). This model does not address issues of housing development or conversion of existing businesses to cooperative ownership; other models are more appropriate for that work.
The guide has four chapters, and includes additional resources listed at the end.
