SBDCNet 2021 Employee Ownership Webinar Series
Session 2 – Financing Cooperatively-Owned Business Entities
One challenge to cooperative enterprise financing has been the conflict between traditional underwriting’s inclusion of personal collateral and the cooperative entity structure of sometimes many worker-owners who do not have majority ownership. Learn how financiers are overcoming this barrier through non-extractive financing, special loan pools, and ongoing technical assistance requirements.
Panelists include: Brendan Martin, The Working World; Joe Marrafino, Cooperative Fund of New England; Alison Lingane, Project Equity.
