We're a platform co-operative with the goal of being an innovative engine for the creation and support of other new and existing co-operatives. A mutual incubator. Our open P2P support model will enable us to crowdsource innovation, finance and support, and open up new opportunities to expand the co-operative sector.

We're bringing co-operative development into the era of the digital platform. Our mission is to build a rich, sustaining community of interest and active support, providing a nurturing environment for new co-op projects that can help to accelerate their early stage development and which grows strong relationships of mutual support over the long term.

The co-operative values and principles that underpin our approach are closely aligned with those of the free/libre open source software movement, and we think that the co-operative business model offers real potential to address some of the big challenges of sustainability in the FLOSS world.

We're providing a co-operative host here on Open Collective to encourage and support new co-operative start-ups, enabling them to raise funds from their crowd without the burden of needing to incorporate or set up a bank account.
