FOR WORKER COOP CONVERSIONS

Strategies for the field to increase patient, risk capital

This paper is targeted at the field of worker coop practitioners, investors, lenders and advocates. We first share some of the challenges to placing investments in worker coop conversions from different perspectives: investors, existing loan funds and worker cooperatives themselves. Then, we discuss and share recommendations for each of the five key challenges to increasing patient capital investment:

  • Low and fragmented supply
  • Fragmented demand
  • Unconventional business model with unfamiliar risks, customized underwriting and high transaction costs
  • Constrained returns
  • Need for impact data
