Enterprises

Community enterprises are autonomous private sector entities owned by membership groups for their own mutual assistance.  They can be designated as associations or societies.  They vary in business structure, cooperative practice and corporate governance.  They vary  in legal statutes, political ties, cultural traditions and personal values.  In spite of their endless variety, community enterprises have similar agendas and accountabilities to people, property and power.  We help them with infrastructure to build collaborative investment, information, strategy and scale.  Their rich diversity is reflected in their other specialized networks and ties, such as:

  • Socents
  • Co-ops
  • B-Corps
