In this webinar, the National League of Cities and the Democracy at Work Institute presented on New York City’s Owner to Owners initiative. The Owner to Owners initiative, an outreach and capacity-building campaign, helps business owners explore the option of selling their company to their employees at a fair market price while preserving jobs and sustaining wealth.

Cities will learn about how:

  • Business support lines can be deployed to expand employee ownership education and connect businesses with service providers to support their needs.
  • Municipalities can use existing resources to support the rapidly changing needs of small businesses and build capacity to support employee ownership.
  • Employee ownership can save and serve small businesses on the verge of closing during an emergency.
