|Description||Commercialise Side Projects|
|Seed, 11/2013 |
The Codesign Cooperative is for coders and designers to collaborate on software and application development and build innovative viable products and services.
We are a community based cooperative where our members can collaborate around projects they choose via a voting process. Members are invited to the CoOp or can apply to be invited and hold equal shareholding and voting rights. Members collaborate on four types of projects including startup’s, enterprise prototyping, not for profit & community based. In a nutshell the CoOp commercialises side projects for individuals and enterprise organisations that are not structured to do so.
The Codesign Cooperative is the first organisation of its kind in the world that benefits its members in the software and application development industry.
Experienced coders & designers have great ideas and always have side-projects, yet are not prepared to leave their employment to execute those ideas.
Many people have great ideas but either do not know or cannot execute them for various reasons.
Young people have great ideas however are vulnerable when it comes to launching a project due to lack of experience.
Our community based cooperative joins people together for greater achievements. The Codesign Cooperative is structured as a registered trading cooperative. It is managed by a Board of Directors on behalf of its members.
