start.coop started: the first business accelerator for distributed ownership

A group of veteran entrepreneurs launched Start.coop this week, the first US-based accelerator for cooperatively owned startups. The group plans to raise over $2.5 million to help startups use distributed ownership models to create economies of scale, whether through well-established group purchasing models or through newer tech based “platform co-ops.” The accelerator is accepting applications for its first class starting this July.
