Panel on reliable sources for co-operative capital
Nov 26, 2015
All enterprises need capital to start, grow and develop, and co-operatives are no exception. But how can co-operatives ensure that raising capital does not undermine their specific nature?
Where can reliable sources for co-operative capital be found? These are some of the questions that the Alliance’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Co-operative Capital have been examining, This session will present the results of the Commission’s research on the capital structure of co-operatives, as well as the Thought Leadership Paper on Co-operative Capital. The Paper explores reconciling co-operative values, principles and democracy with raising capital in timely and cost-effective ways in the globalized financial market.
