The Original Community Investment

A guide to worker coop conversion investments

This paper aims to help investors understand worker cooperative investing, especially in the context of worker coop conversions. We first review the basics of worker cooperatives and worker coop conversions including how financial statements are different and how deals are structured. Then, we go into detail about investment options and considerations.

An investor who wants to make a steady return and support the worker cooperative model has a range of options to invest either directly or indirectly in worker-owned cooperatives. We hope this information is helpful to encourage investment in this highly beneficial—and highly underrepresented— business model.
