A slide of pictures will be shown on projector about the project.
The coordinator will introduce topics in three rounds; need of making a worker cooperative, challenges of developing a worker cooperative, the help available in start-up, & growing by coop stakeholders. 
Then the floor will be open for discussions and networking opportunities.
