Ørexund webinar: Join the conversation: Why do cooperatives and co-ownership matter?
Description: Meet Mikkeline Thomsen from the successful Danish democratic company Analyse & Tal, and the author of “Medejer”, Andreas Pindstrup Jørgensen. In a dialog, they will present perspectives about why democratic ownership is a good business strategy and why co-ownership can be the way to success for a start-up. Get a chance to ask your own questions and influence the dialog.
At the webinar we start by setting the scene showing data suggesting why cooperatives are a good company form – including data on productivity and survival chances for democratic companies.
Who can participate: Everyone.
