Rising 5 stories in the heart of Chicago's south side is a plan to erect IWN.Haus, an innovative hub fostering entrepreneurial success and community prosperity.
At the core of IWN.Haus' vision is a commitment to community wealth building models, which will empower local residents through inclusive ownership and participatory decision-making.
The development intends to go beyond traditional corporate structures by incorporating elements like:
A worker cooperative spearheaded by area residents which will manage operations of the IWN.Haus Gallery + Events and IWN.Haus Club
Spaces set aside for other locally-owned worker cooperatives to lease at affordable rates
Inviting community members to have a financial stake in the project via a community investment vehicle
Democratic governance structures that give neighborhood residents an active role in shaping IWN.Haus offerings to meet community needs and priorities
