COOPSTARTER – A EUROPEAN NETWORK FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUCCESSFUL YOUNG COOPERATIVE ENTREPRENEURS

The current economic crisis is hitting European businesses hard, and younger generations are paying most of the bill. We are convinced that now more than ever cooperatives are the business model of the future and they are key to sustainable prosperity. As cooperative organisations, we feel a great responsibility to find ways to contribute to a solution to unemployment, especially for young people.
Therefore, 8 partners from across Europe have created the project CoopStarter in order to make the cooperative business model known to younger generations, and to accompany people willing to set up a cooperative through the start-up phase. With this website, we want to encourage and inspire young entrepreneurs to carry out their business ideas, and provide them with the tools to make them successful. 
Coopstarter is a network of business support organisations that every day, all across Europe, accompany and support young professionals who want to start or develop a cooperative business.
