Baltimore Roundtable For Economic Democracy

We help worker co-ops in the greater Baltimore area get the capital they need to start and grow.



Cooperative Knowledge

Our mission is to make cooperative development knowledge and resources available to communities across Maryland. We are building a new, more democratic and more equitable economy, focusing on the marginalized communities that need those resources the most.


Cooperative Capital

Our approach to lending is different from more transactional financial institutions: we understand that the legacy of systemic injustice means that the communities most in need of patient, non-extractive capital are those least likely to get it.
