DESCRIPTION

How might users and workers keep the value we produce? How can we share in the benefits of ownership – power, wealth, and better tech? Come be a part of our gathering on May 22, 2019 Who's coming:

  • We’re a group of people building more equitable ownership models that unite users, workers, and owners, and an ecosystem to sustain them.
  • This event is for people developing a product in a startup or enterprise; offering services independently or in a collective; and organizing to improve the industry.
  • The talks and workshops feature teams building equitable ownership in a new accelerator called Start.coop, including a patient-owned health research platform, a data tool by & for rideshare drivers, an affordable housing construction co-op, and more. It also features speakers who have experience in land trusts, cooperatives, and allied efforts.
What you'll get:
  • Attendees will get ideas, connections, and resources necessary to build equitable ownership.
  • You'll come away with lessons on equitable ownership models for any group or project, at any stage or scale.
