GWCEO serves as the central hub for information, technical assistance, resources and access to capital to owners interested in selling their business to their employees; employee groups interested in purchasing a business; and workers who wish to start up a company with shared ownership. The center is powered by Wacif, and builds on a long and rich history of employee ownership in the Greater Washington region. Learn more.
