About Project Equity
Project Equity's mission is to foster economic resiliency with low-income communities by demonstrating and replicating strategies that increase employee ownership. As a growing organization with a big vision, we are seeking passionate and skilled collaborators who can help us in several short-term roles. We may expand our team later in 2018, and successful contractors will be strong candidates for future staff roles.
Employee ownership strengthens the fabric of our local economies, builds stronger businesses and creates high quality jobs. Project Equity helps businesses transition to employee ownership, often as a succession plan for a retiring business owner. We help structure the sale of the business, bringing in the necessary advisors, resources and financing, then support the successful transition to an effective ownership culture.
Ours is a place-based model, built on local awareness-raising and network building to support the local ecosystem including financing, local government, small business and industry networks. We started in the SF Bay Area, and are expanding through partnerships to ten additional regions by 2020. Our national field-building work raises the profile of this approach as a community economic development strategy.
