From a seller perspective, converting a business to a worker cooperative is similar to a management buyout. Instead of just one or a few of the employees, most of the employees will become owners.

Second, more financial stakeholders increases their overall commitment to its success. Third, more committed buyers means safety of seller financing. Convert to a Worker Cooperative.
