Platform Cooperatives and Community Investment
August 31 @ 17:30 - 19:00
🌐 Platform Co-operatives and Community Investments – Call
Join us for an insightful exploration into the world of fundraising through cooperative membership! 🤝 In this 1,5 hours call, we will delve into possibilities of financing projects through collective efforts.
Typically, cooperatives operate under the premise of members pooling their money to accomplish collective objectives. However, the reality of many platform cooperatives is often a quite different one: Initial funding frequently falls short, leaving operational needs and fair compensation for platform stewards unmet. When conventional avenues like bank loans or grants remain inaccessible, the cooperative members themselves are often the source of sought-after assistance.
Learn from the experiences of Circles Coop and SuperCoop in Berlin, as they share their journey through community fundraising such as gitcoin grants, token sales and other forms of membership investments. Our speakers will provide insights into how they managed the challenges associated with getting community members invested – both with their time and financially.
