What is a business entity, anyway, and when should you form one? And which is right for your cooperative enterprise?

This teach-in will cover:

- What are business entities?
- What factors should you consider when choosing an entity for a worker-owned enterprise including sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, and Corporations?
- What are the steps to forming a legal entity?
- Where can you find more resources?
