Since 1996, Charter Partners has pioneered the concept of Cooperative Entrepreneurship®: quality business owners working together to improve their businesses and industries.
The goals of Cooperative Entrepreneurship are straightforward, and they resonate with entrepreneurs:
+ Increase Revenues Through Innovation + Lower Expenses Through Collaborative Group Purchasing = Increase Profit And Cash Flow
The Charter Partners Community has developed an environment of mutual trust and respect in which to strive toward these goals. People work together and have fun in a relaxed setting; meetings are productive; sharing of knowledge gives information and influence to participants; and all are motivated toward sensible solutions for themselves and others.
Collaboration -- with focus, speed and energy -- helps business innovate faster than they could alone. We tackle tough business problems -- and do it together in a spirit of partnership where everyone learns and everyone gains.
The economic benefits of Cooperative Entrepreneurship run along a continuum – starting with group purchasing, and moving upward to strategic purchasing to shared resources to innovating to creating new business opportunities.
