About Us

The Working World (TWW) promotes a just and sustainable economy by providing innovative financing and support to workplaces that build assets and power in low-income communities. Supporting ownership of productive enterprises by stakeholders such as workers, communities, and consumers, the Working World aims to create higher quality jobs, balanced and sustainable development, and a democratic expression of economic activity to represent the desires and needs of society more fully. With its unique non-extractive financing model, the Working World aims to increase the amount of wealth rooted in communities and distributed throughout the population. Ultimately, the Working World seeks to challenge the current norms of both finance and production and foster a more sustainable and equitable economic future.

TWW has successfully served over 150 cooperatives in Argentina, Nicaragua and the US over the past decade with $4M deployed, and is now seeking specifically to grow our presence within the United States through the expansion of our philanthropic capital in addition to a new investment fund. The organization has a strong global track record to build from and anticipates significant growth over the next five years.
