Founded in 2000 in Western Massachusetts, E2M (“Economy 2000”) aims to forge a community supporting economic model in which participating businesses agree to: 1) share a percentage of profits (at least 5%) with their employees and 2) contribute a percentage of profits (again, at least 5%) to the community, half of which would go to charitable causes with the remainder helping provide start-up capital for more community-oriented businesses. The group kicked off this effort with the sale of E2M coffee, but, over time, hopes to add a wide variety of product lines.
