How do worker coops acquire the capital needed to run the businesses?

In conventional businesses, investors invest billions to a company to continue its growth. Thus, these investors begin to own the company they are funding as well. How does a worker coop manage this if the means of production are owned by the worker? Also, Professor, you mention that there will be an economic collapse greater than the recession, nine years have passed since the recession, and the economy is doing better than ever. So what is the issue?
