We've been nurturing the dream of a artisan-led cooperative marketplace since July, but we chose National Co-Op Month (that's right, October!) to officially launch.
The Artisans Cooperative has already made substantial progress towards our year-end goals. We already have our initial goal of 100+ members, and raised 54% of our initial fundraising goal! Our initial consultation with the US Federation of Worker Co-ops is scheduled for November.
Our priority is to support artisans businesses while growing our cooperative and developing the marketplace.
Our work is just beginning. Read on for the latest news and keep spreading the word.
