Diary of a Young Co-operative Startup
To introduce our new monthly series, Rhiannon Colvin, a recent graduate and social entrepreneur, shares her journey so far and explains why she decided to start a co-op social enterprise.
“Taking on board the insight and inspiration gained from my research I returned to London to set up AltGen, an initiative to support 18-25-year-olds to set up worker co-operatives. Its aim is to empower those in our generation to take control over their future and their work. To be our own bosses and work towards an economy that solves social and environmental problems rather than creating them.”
