‘Raising Money the Co-operative Way’


Facilitator: Andy Cocktaildress

Webinar: Wednesday 25 May 2022 from 12.00pm – 1.30pm 

We have invited practitioners from around UK and far afield to share their knowledge and skills. They will help us to develop co-op skills locally during short, relevant and interesting webinars from April to June 2022.

This webinar is all about money!

Andy Cocktaildress will explore what co-ops can do to raise money when most they need it. If you are thinking to raise ‘community shares’ or launch a loanstock offer, you must join this interesting overview on what works and what does not.
