The Co-op Clinic is the USFWC's technical assistance and training program for worker co-ops. Co-op Clinic provides culturally-affirming services to worker cooperatives and traditional businesses converting to worker-ownership. We do this through our trained staff and a network of Peer Advisors, primarily composed of current or former worker-owners.

Though we can support you in all-around small business areas, we specialize in technical assistance that cooperatives need, specifically: decision-making, co-op finances, boards, bylaws and more.

Our staff and peer advisors can help you…

  • Create a roadmap for starting or converting to a cooperative.
  • Find the right structure and governance for your democratic workplace.
  • Get training in cooperative finances.
  • Become loan ready.
  • Finish your business plan.
  • Create policies that work for your team.
