When it comes to cooperative ownership, we’re asking everyone to take a bet on a collective vision and make an investment in a shared future. Even with a minimum contribution of $10USD, we recognize this is NOT a small ask. That’s why in this post we’re going to make the business case for Artisans Cooperative.
One of the key benefits of being a member-owner of Artisans Cooperative is the ability to submit proposals to the Coop. In this post, we’ll introduce our Member Proposals Program.
In this post, we’ll explain the differences and interactions between payment plans and points pledges for becoming a member of Artisans Cooperative.
