Co-op Power Hour: Business incubators for the rest of us

Starting a business is hard, and investor-driven models can incline entrepreneurs to put profit before community. A new generation of cooperative business incubators are changing that — putting the startup process under the control of the businesses themselves.

Hosts Nathan Schneider and Paul Bindel speak with guests:

Rani Langer-Croager, co-founder, Curriculum & Instruction Specialist at Uptima Business Boot camp, a network of member-owned business accelerators dedicated to providing entrepreneurs with greater access to hands-on education, resources and community to create thriving businesses.

Joe Ewing, co-founder & Executive Director of Wayfinder Co-op, a member-owned, cooperative workspace and community for outdoor-inspired entrepreneurs in Denver.



The Co-op Power Hour is a monthly production of the Colorado Co-operative Study Circle. It airs on the fourth Thursday of every month at 6pm on It’s the Economy.
