Your co-operative starts with good design
Co-ops need three things to be successful: the right people, solving the right problem, with the right business idea. Getting these things right will set you and your business on the path to success. That’s why all Co-operatives First supports start by ensuring your project has these key elements.
In the early days of your project, it can be hard to know if you are going in the right direction. That’s where our team of experts comes in. We always start by listening and asking the right questions to make sure your business creates value for the people involved and is designed for success.
