The Co-op was founded in October 2016 by a group of entrepreneurs who felt there was a lack of opportunities for small and home-run businesses to sell and promote their goods and services. Currently, the Co-op sponsors pop-up showcases to give entrepreneurs selling and promotional space. All events are free and open to the public. The Co-op's ultimate goal is to one day provide and run a physical office space for local entrepreneurs' selling and administrative needs. The Boston Local Co-op is a nonprofit organization.
To provide selling and promotional opportunities to local makers and entrepreneurs, thereby enriching the local community.
