How can startups transition from community engagement to community ownership? This session features two startups that are figuring it out. Hacker Noon, a tech publishing platform based in rural Colorado, moved from Medium to its own software thanks to a $1 million equity crowdfunding campaign. Groupmuse, a platform for organizing classical-music performances, is in the process of converting to a worker cooperative—and exploring how to include its musician community, too. Participants will come away with lessons from each "Exit to Community" journey.
