Baby boomers are the next big thing in co-ops, according to Shelterforce, the nation’s oldest housing and community development magazine. As business owners move to retirement, employees have the opportunity to buy the company, and such conversions are a major opportunity for cooperatives.
Shelterforce’s article featured the work that we have done in Maine, including the planned conversion of Rock City and the widely celebrated conversion of Island Employee Cooperative.
Our Business Ownership Solutions program is the driving force behind both conversions. If you are a business owner considering employee ownership, get in touch!
