Meet the Team

Collin S. Ferguson

Founder & President

Collin proudly declares himself a “coopreneur,” i.e., an entrepreneur who seeks to advance the practice of #cooperative values and principles. His journey as a “coopreneur” began with earning a BA in Urban Studies at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Rutgers University, New Jersey. After graduating, he returned home to Portland, Oregon, and attempted several entrepreneurial projects, including a multi-lateral barter exchange and a benevolent society. In 2011, he gained critical business skills by completing the Six Week Sprint at the Portland Ten (tenx.org). In 2017, he became a Cooperative Management Education Cooperative graduate student at the Sobey School of Business, Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He concluded his graduate schooling with a professional certificate in Learning Experience Design at Oregon State University. Now, Collin is working toward launching a career as a UX Strategist, helping clients define the project, business, and user goals of learning experiences.
