Change starts with the story.

The story we tell others, and the story we tell ourselves, about who we are and where we are going as a community. 


Co|Operative is an entrepreneurial, purpose-driven organization. We work to create real-world results by building strong ecosystems, advancing action-based initiatives, and unlocking the value of human and financial capital in our community. 

By focusing on a combination of three key areas - engaged community development, targeted placemaking, and the advancement of local entrepreneurship - we work to accelerate economic and social impact.
