Workers Development builds worker cooperative businesses in the New York City
metropolitan area. Our business structure is also organized as a worker
Our primary mission is the proliferation of worker-owner positions across a variety of industries and economic tiers in New York City. In working toward this broad goal, Workers Development is currently pioneering the use of innovative financing techniques with respect to the unique needs of worker ownership and worker cooperation.
Foremost among these strategies is the "direct public offering," which would permit worker cooperatives to raise non-voting capital investments from local investors. Visit Cutting Edge Capital for up-to-date information about innovations in financing that are oriented to the public interest.
