In March 2014, Marco and Nicola were anxious. They were preparing for a meeting that would be vital to the future of Paolo Babini, a social cooperative that they led, that served the people of Forl?, Italy. Due to a 30% cut in Paolo Babini’s funding, Marco and Nicola were going to pitch a new project to the cooperative’s supervisory board that would help the organization become more financially self-sufficient.
