On Friday, October 22, we’ll wrap up this week’s IMPACT+ programming with an interactive workshop led by Greg Brodsky, founder and co-director of Start.coop, and Danny Spitzberg, lead researcher at Turning Basin Labs.
Aligning ownership and purpose is a superpower for co-ops and all mutualistic businesses. During this 60-minute interactive workshop, we introduce a new tool for the job: the Ownership Model Canvas (OMC). We’ll start by showing how a mainstream tool, the Business Model Canvas, omits questions of ownership benefits and risks, and perpetuates economic inequality. Then we’ll review the OMC, discuss an example from a music patronage co-op, and facilitate an exercise for you to use the OMC template to align or realign your business success with key stakeholders. Finally, you’ll get peer review from other participants and advice and next steps.
