Hi, I'm

Justin Franks

Social Entrepreneur | Web Developer | Cooperative Advocate

A Michigan transplant in DC — helping small businesses and entrepreneurs define their digital presence by day – developing a multi-stakeholder content management network by night.

Extensive research in international political economy, digital network technologies, and alternative business models.

I’m resourceful, curious, and socially aware with a passion for collaboration through creative digital media.

Founder, CrowdWork.coop

A project-based digital services platform cooperative, currently developing several interoperable business utilities around member and customer needs. As a co-op venture, CrowdWork’s mission is to bridge the digital divide by increasing the purchasing power, back office capacity, and digital presence of gig workers, small businesses, and community groups — particularly those under-represented — in a cooperative environment.

Co-Founder, Dream Factory Cooperative DC

The Dream Factory Cooperative DC is a business development cooperative that helps business owners reduce the administrative, operational and strategic barriers that keep them from achieving exponential growth. DreamFactory.coop

Volunteer, DC Cooperative Stakeholders Group

A volunteer group of citizens, community leaders, business people, non-profits, and local government officials. Our mission is to create a nurturing co-op ecosystem in the District that supports the vitality and growth of all types of existing co-ops and the successful launch of new co-ops.

 

In a volunteer capacity, I am boosting its online presence at DCstakeholders.coop
