About Us

We are cooperatives coming together to provide cooperative businesses with the expertise, tools, and connections to reach new levels of success.

Making the world a better place

The influences on today’s economy are set to grow the vast inequalities in our communities and the number of people left behind. We are co-op leaders coming together to combat this trend by providing:

  • Cooperative businesses with the expertise, tools, and connections to reach new levels of success.
  • Individuals with a way to find, support, and participate with co-ops.
  • Entrepreneurs the knowledge and resources to start a new cooperative business.

Our Story

Cooperatives for a Better World is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization.

What started out as a research project in 2015, exploring cooperative awareness has now grown into a mature organization bringing business-focused resources to help build a more inclusive economy for all.

We are a network of cooperative leaders and influencers from different sectors of the economy and all corners of the world sharing our cooperative identity and the difference it makes in our local, national, and global story.

National Connection

Cooperatives for a Better World delivers training, media, materials, and social connections to improve people’s understanding of the cooperative business model. In the United States, national associations, leading cooperative businesses, and individuals alike are coming together to share their success in making a difference in their communities. 

Global Partnership

The cooperative business model has no borders and neither does our mission. The International Cooperative Alliance is facilitating the sharing and adoption of Cooperatives for a Better World’s messaging and materials in countries around the world. Together, we will support the growth of cooperatives for the benefit of all.

The positive impact and influence co-ops can have on the world is exponential. Our big job is to make sure more people know and understand the co-op model.
