About Business Innovation
In order to advance our community revitalization efforts, Urban Upbound creates initiatives that increase assets, resources, and economic opportunities in the communities we serve. Our Worker Cooperatives Program works with local entrepreneurs to incubate worker-owned businesses.
Our objective is to create and maintain sustainable jobs, and to generate wealth in order to improve the quality of life of workers while at the same time promoting community and local development. Through our program, we have been able to incubate five cooperative businesses: OnPoint Security (the first cooperative business started by Urban Upbound!), OSHA Solutions, Paw Partners, Sunlight Ecoservices, and Progressive Cleaning Solutions.
