Do you cooperate?

Monday, December 17, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

The Austin Cooperative Business Association is looking for researchers to participate in two new investigative projects examining the impact of the local cooperative economy. The first project will look at opportunities for traditional businesses in Central Texas to convert into cooperative models, with research showing the economic impact as well as the best methods and techniques for making the conversion. Sectors of interest include food and agriculture, retail, service industry and restaurants, art and culture, and construction and professional services. The second project will look at gaps in technical assistance for those looking to start or improve a cooperative business in Central Texas. Research will include a compilation of existing resources and finding ways and opportunities to improve the cooperative community. Proposals are due Dec. 31, with full details available here.
