Exciting, you should do it! We think more companies should consider becoming co-ops–it's a just and equitable way to run a company. It's already been and it's going to continue to be a lot of hard work, but we think it's totally worth it.
We partnered with a company called Project Equity, who first helped us determine whether Maximum Fun was a good candidate for conversion to a cooperative, and then helped guide us through the process. You can learn more about their work and get in touch with them at project-equity.org.
