We’re pleased to welcome Ben Sandel to our team of consultants working with boards and co-op leaders on startups and capitalization projects. Ben is one of those rare individuals with entrepreneurial zest and passion for group process—energies he put toward founding Friendly City Food Co-op in Harrisonburg, Va. Now he’s helping other groups reach their goals of raising money and opening their food co-ops with a strong foundation. “What I love most about what I’m doing now is that it’s all about connecting people,” he said.
When those connections are made, a lot can happen to spark a community. He knows this firsthand and believes that’s because cooperation is such dynamic way to bring people together. “It means something to foster and strengthen this kind of community.” Find out more about Ben’s background working with groups.
