Examples of non-IT cooperatives are Associated Press in the USA,
Mondragon in Spain, Arla Foods in Scandinavia and Desjardins in
Canada. Some partnerships and alliances are cooperatives, but not all.
The main definition is at

The Cooperative Fund is a Community Development Finance Institution
(CDFI).  It funds cooperatives, but:
"Is CFNE a cooperative?
No, but we use consensus decision making, our workplace is democratic,
and the board is from the cooperative  community we serve."

Examples of large cooperatives can be found at
and they're usually the most famous.
