We are creating economic reparative systems by supporting the development of
cooperative business communities consisting of social entrepreneurs & community stakeholders with a commitment to the community where they are located.
The Ke'nekt Cooperative is an intentional & equitable space that allows established legacy businesses, start up concepts & micro pop ups to occupy a cooperative space that fosters business education and growth.
If there is such a thing as economic genocide, it is happening, as we speak and the in the context of a global pandemic and gentrification forces that threaten to overrun Atlanta’s southwest side neighborhoods.
We are working collectively to imagine, build, operate, share, and defend a democratic and reparative economic system that supports the capacity for our people to generate and enjoy wealth together.
