The Indiana Cooperative Development Center (ICDC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that promotes cooperatives as a vibrant model to address the economic and social needs of Indiana’s communities. ICDC began offering services in 2003 and was incorporated in 2006.
ICDC provides assistance to a wide variety of cooperatives including food, agriculture, arts and crafts, child care, energy, and housing with start-up, management, and other technical assistance. It also provides training opportunities designed to bring together groups of people involved in the same type of cooperative development such as our Up & Coming start-up conference for food cooperatives.
ICDC hosts a Cooperative Summit designed to raise the profile of the cooperative business model and to bring together cooperatives across industry sectors for networking.
