Empower is incorporated as a limited liability company. Following rigorous legal and financial research of social entrepreneurial and democratic economy models, with a preference for worker-owned structures, we decided on the figure of an LLC because it allowed us the flexibility to distribute membership or worker-owner units and fulfill our social mission and philanthropic commitment.
To date 100% of our revenue has come from sales and, for the foreseeable future, this business model promises stability and humble-to-modest growth. However, looking forward, we may choose to pursue lines of credit, issue slow-money debt, convertible debt, expand our equity base, and/or sell non-voting equity shares to qualified parties. Potential investors aligned with our long-term goals of economic, political, and social justice may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
