MarketPlace: Handwork of India wins a British Airways Business Opportunity Grant!

MarketPlace recently received exciting news. We have been awarded a British Airways Business Opportunity Grant! In this program, British Airways selects companies they feel would most benefit from the travel and business support they are offering. The grant, good for a year, will cover airfare for 2 ½ round trip tickets to India, as well as five free global shipments with British Airways World Cargo, $1000 toward hotel accommodations, and a color printer.

The airfare will allow us to coordinate some face-to-face meetings which otherwise would not be in the budget. As an extra treat, the tickets are Club World business class, and the grant includes 5 cards for access to BA’s business lounges during the year. Normally, we fly the most inexpensive way possible, which is often inconvenient and uncomfortable, and always involves changing planes. We are looking forward to using those lounges when we have time between changing flights. With frequent trips to India and regular 60-hour (or more) work weeks, this will be a welcome change for us!  Thank you to British Airways.


  1. I received your latest catalog with information about the increase in the cost of food. Would it be possible to set up a buying co-op for food for the members of your co-ops? It might be a way to bring prices down a little.
