Co-op Cincy is a non-profit business incubator, building a network of worker-owned businesses. Since 2011, we have worked with groups of entrepreneurs, organizations, communities and retiring business owners to create and sustain worker- and community-owned cooperative businesses. We strive to create an economy that works for everyone — that supports family-sustaining jobs, provides business ownership opportunities for underserved and marginalized people, and is accountable to the communities that drive it. Our work is inspired by Mondragon, the largest and most successful cooperative network in the world. By bringing Mondragon’s resilient model to the SW Ohio region, we are developing an integrated network of cooperative businesses to grow the economy and develop community wealth from the ground up, drawing on community members’ untapped potential.
