The member-owners of Radiate Consulting™ North Carolina, a new tech cooperative founded by six entrepreneurs with a wide range of expertise, will introduce themselves and their business at an online event on Thursday, September 2.
Radiate Consulting™ is a worker-owned and run small business specializing in building high-quality websites and custom web applications that help non-profit organizations, universities, and small businesses meet their tech needs. The founding member-owners are web/mobile application developers and administrators.
Radiate Consulting™ North Carolina is the fourth Radiate worker cooperative, and the first to focus on providing tech solutions. As a worker cooperative, the business is both owned and managed by its workers. Together, they ensure fair wages are provided, a healthy work environment is maintained, and—most notably— all Radiate professionals share the profits the business generates.
The business has been launched by Code the Dream in partnership with The Democracy at Work Institute.
“There’s a lot of opportunity in the cooperative way that we’re approaching things,” said Member-Owner Brian Espinosa. “Currently we have two major contracts and we’re looking to grow quickly, and to grow together. We have so many strengths among the six of us, and I’m excited about harnessing those to grow this business.”
Radiate Consulting™ North Carolina launched with support from Code the Dream, a North Carolina-based nonprofit providing high-level software development education to people from diverse low-income backgrounds, and the Democracy at Work Institute, an organization working to expand worker ownership to reach communities locked out of business ownership opportunities, especially BIPOC, immigrant, and low-wage workers..
“We are happy to see some of our grads go on to such a promising endeavor,” said Code the Dream co-founder Daisy Magnus-Aryitey. “We already have a contract with Radiate Consulting North Carolina, and we are thrilled to have a chance to continue to work with these motivated, skilled individuals.”
At the September 2 event, Radiate’s member-owners will introduce their business and themselves, and explain the services they are now offering.
