Equal Exchange Event

Equal Exchange Crowdfund is a new way to invest in the Cooperative Economy

Consumer Food Coops have been at the forefront of member funded community capital for years. Every business needs capital in order to operate and to grow. In Equal’s line of work, it’s what pays for things like roasting equipment, warehouses and offices, packaging machinery, forklifts, the coolers for our chocolate, and raw materials like green coffee beans.

Through a new federal regulation, Equal Exchange can now include more people in an alternative capital model through crowdfunding. This means funding a cooperative business with the support of our own network and democratizing another aspect of the Equal Exchange model.

Join The Conversation

Join us Thursday (3/7) 5-6 pm at the Lebanon store with Equal Exchange Founder, Rink Dickinson and Nicole Vitello, Capital Coordinator. It will be an afternoon of exploration into one of the critical but lesser-known aspects of our alternative business model: the role of capital.

Learn about how Equal Exchange is doing business differently and how you can join us in building a better food system.

Can’t join the event then come say hi beforehand in the education center where they will be giving out chocolate and coffee samples.
