A Decade of Overcoming Challenges
When times are tough, when dreams are big and bold, when the stakes are high; you need a technology partner you can trust.
CoLab Cooperative is your trusted ally.
As a worker-owned technology cooperative with a decade of experience building digital solutions for impactful organizations, CoLab Cooperative was founded to amplify impact for organizations with social and ecological missions.
A human-centered approach
We design technologies to meet human needs and surmount community challenges. Our work begins with a human-centered design process. By connecting, listening, and deeply understanding your needs we can lower risk, maximize impact, and help you flourish.
Our hearts are invested.
We care about the impact we achieve together. At CoLab, tech is a means to positive social and ecological outcomes. A means to support community self-sufficiency. As a force for good, we will work with you to find a way.
CoLab delivered 150% on the collaborative approach. That made a huge difference to the success of the project. They weren't just looking at the short-term goal, but also the long-term strategy for storytelling, user experience, performance and scalability. It was invaluable and they completely delivered in that regard.

I was thrilled that CoLab provided major customization built around my needs as an artist and thought leader. Another aspect I really loved about their approach was the way in which all team members were engaged in the build out process and how they were very responsive to my goals overall. As a whole CoLab has excellent attention to detail and they build customized web tools that match the goals of the client and that can easily adapt to growth.
