Since 2007, C2BE has been working to strengthen businesses, including those owned by members of historically under-served communities and those seeking conversion to employee ownership. Our vision is an inclusive new economy in Detroit anchored by a supportive network of worker-owned businesses. C2BE’s mission is to build a sustainable, more equitable and inclusive living-wage local economy, by developing a cooperating network of worker-owned businesses and increasing the number of worker owners.
