The Co-op Academy is a year-long program accepting teams of three or more people with a good food business idea. Over the course of three phases, we will teach your basic finance, branding, and management, place you in an apprenticeship with a successful local business, and help you launch! If you can not come to the potluck but are interested in Colors Co-op Academy please contact the Coordinator, Bekah Galang, at (313)451-4187 or [email protected] The purpose of these gatherings are simple: to break bread over good conversation surrounding the work of building a new economy, based in human need, full employment /green jobs which works for everyone. Everyone is invited who is doing or is interested in doing this kind of community-building. As we get to know each other, we may foster relationships that will enhance our various respective projects and create the possibility for future new-economy collaborations.
