In May, Colorado Sen. John Hickenlooper introduced the Capital for Cooperatives Act, an historic proposal for opening the doors of the Small Business Administration to cooperatives of all kinds. If made law, this bill would enable member-owned businesses to access resources that other kinds of businesses have long enjoyed. In this webinar, we will hear from leaders in the Colorado cooperative sector about the importance of capital access, as well as a representative from Sen. Hickenlooper's team, who will discuss the bill's progress so far.
