What is a cooperative?
International Co-operative Alliance:
“A cooperative is an autonomous association of persons
united to meet their economic, social and cultural needs and
aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically
controlled enterprise”
The basic cooperative model
Member

(Osuus)
The member
joins the
cooperative
The member
buys a share.

the cooperative
equity.

enterprises
What makes cooperatives
relevant today?
What is emerging?
Platform cooperativism
Work cooperatives

Local service cooperatives
Platform cooperativism
What if… Uber would be owned by the drivers?
Meaning that the drivers would
● set the business logic, working terms and conditions, etc.
● decide how the profits are shared or invested
Awesome customer experience: taking the customer service platform to the
cooperative ownership
The ownership matters
Case 1: the Women’s cooperative
New York based worker coop
Cornell Tech is developing the platform:
an app that helps scaling the business
“Coopify app connect low-income
workers to the “digital sharing economy”
not as precarious cogs in an impersonal
machine, but on their own terms.“
Case 2: Online marketplace
Fairmondo, Germany
Anyone can trade
Eco and fair trade, local
producers and businesses
The platform is built and
maintained by the coop

Loomio
Financing the cooperative
What is the business model?
What is the capital needed for?
The most obvious sources of capital are

External capital
How to make the investment attractive, while preserving the democratic
member control?
● Equity: cooperative shares
● Loan
● Grants, public funding, EU funding

Do the coops fit into the current startup ecosystem?

What are the needs for networking among the peers?
