START SOCIJALNA ZADRUGA START - START SOCIAL FAST START
The Social Cooperative Start was founded in early 2015 in Split. The purpose of the work of Košljun is to reduce the stigma and stereotype in public about socially excluded citizens as a group that is solely the recipient of social assistance. The co-operative advocates re-engaging in the market, youth, long-term unemployed, and all those who have lost hope in gaining a job. START’s first entrepreneurial venture is Eko-St, a promotional-distributive center for organic products that aims to gather as many Croatian producers with an environmental certificate and place their products on delivery to their home address. Through this center, START informs and educates citizens about organic production and its benefits.
