Businesses organized as cooperatives are reaching new levels of sophistication. Don’t picture long-haired hippies on a farm commune; coop founders are more likely these days to be business-school trained and technology enabled. I should know because I just met some of them. Today, I attended the launch event for Start.coop, a new accelerator program for coop entrepreneurs. And while these coop entrepreneurs looked nothing like 60’s-era stereotypes, they did share their emphasis on social equity among members/workers/owners. It’s a promising way of organizing a businesses to address inequities.
