one person company

A company that has only one person as to its member. Such companies are generally created when there is only one founder/promoter for the business.

a shared company

A company owned by a few people (shareholders).

a cooperative

An autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to create a jointly-owned enterprise.

Each category implies different levels of ownership, decision-making level and distribution of benefits.

Take notes on the blackboard about the different positions and do not judge them.

Remember to allow students the space to encounter problems, gather information, and then make an informed decision—both at the individual and group level. All these skills must be learned through experience.
