Why use the Co-op Creator?

A co-operative is a business and requires the same level of energy, skill and commitment as any other business. Starting and building a business can be complicated, confusing and frustrating. The Co-op Creator is designed to assist with that process. Whether you’re just starting out or have the business up and running, the Co-op Creator has tools and resources to support your work.
