Small businesses play crucial roles in their communities—whether they fulfill a vital need for the individuals in that community or create gainful job opportunities, they have significant influence and impact on the vitality and economic well-being of the surrounding area. As many begin to realize the power in creating and sustaining small businesses, community ownership has emerged as a model for shared wealth creation, access, and opportunity. Because community-owned enterprises are run by residents, they have a distinct connection and commitment to the community and a unique Higher Purpose to ensure it thrives.
As future partners, peers, and members of our conscious community, enabling the creation of business and empowering entrepreneurs means the collective growth and prosperity of enterprises everywhere, and the Center for Community Ownership (CCO) is actively working to put power back into the hands of small communities to realize this potential. Join us for a conversation with Andrew Connor, Director of the CCO, who will provide an overview of what it takes to create these enterprises, examples of how the CCO is helping communities meet their economic development goals, different ways this approach can be implemented, and how businesses in the conscious community can support these efforts.
Andrew Connor has spent the past decade working on new economy issues and innovative forms of community development. He is the founder and director of the Center for Community Ownership (CCO), which is based in Missoula, Montana. The CCO supports urban and rural communities around the country in using community-owned business models to drive positive change and build wealth.
