Nieuws – new website for transferring SMEs into worker-owned cooperatives (source:

With over 450,000 SMEs transferred each year in the EU, transfers into worker-owned cooperatives remain an untapped source of economic dynamism which could ensure secure jobs, sustainable expertise and participation in collective and democratic projects.

This new dedicated website aims to raise awareness of the benefits, processes and conditions for a successful business transfer of a healthy SME into a worker-owned cooperative. It serves as a unique starting point addressing all parties involved in a business transfer - business owners, employees and chartered accountants - who can find specific information and video testimonials regarding their individual experiences. Interested parties can then get in touch with Cooperatives Europe, which can direct them to the relevant points of contact in numerous EU countries for further support.
