Join us on Friday 21 September to ask our expert panel what is needed to start up a co-operative
Back in April, Co-operatives UK contributed a three-part series on how to run a co-operative.
Mark Simmonds began by highlighting two key areas in the pre-start up stage, the business idea and governance. Linda Barlow then focused on communication and planning ahead as important factors in forming a strong team. In the final article of the series, Ged Devlin looked at the financial and legal side of the start-up process.
With this in mind, our live Q&A will focus on:
• how to develop an initial idea
• how to get committed workers on board
• how to make sure your structure – both financial and legal – work for you
Do get in touch if you’d like to be a panelist – email Joe Jervis for more details.
Also, you can leave a question in the comments section below, or come back to ask it live – and follow the debate – on Friday 21 September, 12 – 2pm.
