Co-operatives are an exceptional collective entrepreneurship start-up option. In this webinar we identify another pathway to collective entrepreneurship via the co-operative model: the conversion of existing businesses to co-operatives. This is particularly pertinent today given the succession crisis that we will face in the coming years. Over half of the Canadian population are baby boomers. And of the 1.17 million small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Canada, more than 75% have no succession plan for their business that provides vital goods, services and jobs in communities. The conversion of enterprises to co-operatives is also a solution for the succession crisis.
