Own It: A Colorado Story - CLEO Skip to main content


The Colorado Employee Ownership Office (EOO) in collaboration with the Colorado Office of Film, Television and Media (COFTM) has developed a documentary following the employee ownership journeys of five Colorado companies.

“Own It: A Colorado Story” follows five Colorado-based companies that have transformed the fabric of their communities – and the lives of their workers – by becoming employee-owned.

The five companies featured are:

  • Community Language Cooperative
  • Dojo4
  • Palmer Flowers
  • StoneAge
  • Merrick & Company

The 26-minute film, produced by independent film studio gritHouse, brought the story of employee ownership to life and the studio is now considering an employee-ownership structure for their own company.
