The first incubator of cooperative
and participative startups


Incubating cooperation and participation

Enladiana arises from the need to boost entrepreneurship based on cooperation and participation, as the key to develop large human organizations able to achieve the recovery of local production and to reactivate the economy.

The cooperative and participative organizations apply an innovative approach to grow in a massive way: the members of the organization –which are both clients and even workers– participate very actively in the co-creation, management and development of the cooperative. In the cooperative and participative organizations clients are the owners of the organization. They are non-lucrative structures with the goal of generating a high impact in society by adding as many members as possible. Some success cases are Park Slope Food Coop in Brooklyn or Som Energia in Spain.

Enladiana focuses on innovation –organizational, technological and social innovation– according to the priorities suggested by Europe 2020 programs to foster a "smart, sustainable and inclusive growth".
