What we do
Our national economy is stronger when local economies thrive—and if you’re a business owner, your success is linked to both. Employee ownership is an M&A strategy that fortifies businesses, makes local economies more resilient and allows more people to build economic stability for generations to come. And we’re here to help.
Founded in 2014, we help businesses transition to employee ownership, securing liquidity and a fair sale price for the owner while helping employees build equity and a solid career path. We conduct in-depth regional data studies that analyze business and workforce numbers to help communities retain jobs and address long-standing wealth inequalities that can hold local economies back. We also work with other leaders in the field to advance policies and practices that scale employee ownership across the nation.
