The panel will explore commercial cooperatives as a property ownership option for small businesses.  Panelists, including a brewer, guitar store, and tech toy store, will share their experiences as commercial renters and the impact property ownership has on business growth. Also included is a real estate attorney to address logistics of property collectives. Commercial cooperatives are an extension of 'placemaking theory', which holds that collaboratively, people can shape the public realm. Commercial cooperatives are a medium for small businesses to collectively purchase the building where they operate.
