Business Model Canvas for Worker Cooperatives

Event Details

The Business Model Canvas provides a simple framework for business modeling and analysis that can be applied to any company. Students will learn the key components of a basic business plan, learn the elements and purpose of the business model canvas, and use the business model canvas to develop a strategy for an example business, analyzing its value proposition and key components of its cost structure and revenue streams.

This session is Part III of the ongoing Training Series: How You Can Start or Convert a Worker Cooperative. This training series will provide the basic skills and frameworks for you to start your own, or convert your current business, to a worker cooperative. All of the following sessions will be held at the Mayday Space at 176 St. Nicholas Ave, Bushwick, Brooklyn.

This series is hosted by NYC Network of Worker Cooperatives (NYCNOWC), the Community and Worker Ownership Project (CWOP) at the The Murphy Institute for Labor Studies at CUNY and The Mayday Space. The trainings are free, but we will ask for a suggested donation for those who are able in order to support the Mayday Space.

This series will be run in English.

Note: We will not be serving food. So please try to eat before the session if you can. Of course, you are also free to bring your own meal with you.

Groups that attend the July series will be invited to apply to a weekend long training in September. We suggest you attend this training with at least three people interested in starting a cooperative or converting a business. Applications for this event will be sent out soon, so make sure to hit “Going” or “Interested” on that event page if you want to participate. More details soon.
