Co-Op Members

We have 54 Co-Op members that have signed their Joinder agreements, and paid for shares We have 18 people who have purchased Co-Op shares, but have not completed the process.

We have a potential of 71 total Co-Op members!!! Get those Joinder Agreements in, pay for your shares!


Our minimum contracted obligations, are estimated to be as follows. Our power usage in #306 is OUT OF CONTROL, and the bill this month is $1182 just for that side of the building. The majority of that power usage is from the AC units.

One Time Expenses

OCTOBER $18,850 in One Time Expenses (so far)

$17,850 to CAMERON ROAD INVESTMENTS for Build-Out construction costs
$1,000 to LESLIE PEARSON, CPA for processing and filing the 2012 taxes, plus consultation


Our total cash assets at this time are $8657.00

  • ($2986.62) on Company Credit Card ( $20000 credit line )
  • $8631 in our Bank of America account
  • $26 in petty cash


All funds taken together total $3005

The various funds we are saving have the following balances (against the total assets)

  • $3005 SawStop Fund (Funded, but no cash to back the fund at the moment)

Profit / Loss

If we subtract the pre-allocated funds from the balance assets, we have $5652 available in the bank.

However, we have expenses every month of nearly $10000, and no buffer, a buffer would be ( $9961 * 3 months = ~$29,883 )


INCOME = $8286 EXPENSES = $9961


Co-Op and a new Investment Fund

With the conversion to an LLC Co-Op, we will be entering an investment phase. We need more money to:

  • Build our new 3 month buffer, which will be ~$30,000
  • Continue to build out the space, now that phase 1 is nearing completion.
  • Purchase new chairs, desks, and furnishing.
  • Afford events, outreach, and more!
  • Install a new machine shop, purchase better and more equipment

We're looking to raise another $29k. The way this will be done is through sales of series of non-voting stock in the new Co-Op (Series C).

There are 294 shares left in the C1 financing round.
