Established in 1987, The Ohio Employee Ownership Center is a nonprofit outreach center of Kent State University that supports businesses across Ohio and around the world by its efforts that are proven to save jobs, create wealth, and grow the economy. The OEOC’s work rests on a simple philosophy: broader ownership of productive assets is a good thing for employees, communities, and our country. Since our founding, have worked with over 700 business owners to provide succession planning support, 100 of which implemented complete or partial employee ownership.
