The Mondragon Cooperatives were founded in 1955 and now encompass 120 businesses and employ nearly  100,000 worker-owners. Mondragon is a highly successful cooperative model with over 50 years of proven success. They have established research centers, bank and credit unions, a university, youth cooperatives, and small to large businesses
