Southeast Center for Cooperative Development

The Southeast Center is a newly formed non-profit with the mission to increase economic opportunities and benefits by creating and strengthening cooperative businesses and networks that grow an equitable economy. We give priority to developing the power and capacity of low-income, minority, and/or underserved areas of Metro Nashville, Tennessee, and beyond. Our goal is to increase economic opportunities for people who have been left out of entrepreneurship through employee-ownership in the Southeast. We also offer technical assistance and education to businesses considering converting to employee-ownership.
