Future Equity Crowdfunding for Existing Cooperatives

Tailored Equity Solutions for Cooperative Expansion

Coop Exchange is building a platform that will specialise in offering bespoke equity crowdfunding solutions for existing cooperatives. Understanding the unique legal structures and governance models under which cooperatives operate, on launch we will facilitate the creation of a new class of restricted or non-voting investor shares. These shares are designed to attract a share of profits while upholding the cooperative’s member-driven ethos.

Investor Shares for Existing Cooperatives

  • Creating New Share Classes: We’re building a solution that assists cooperatives in creating a new class of shares that align with their legal structure and governance model. These shares will typically be restricted or non-voting, ensuring the cooperative's control remains with its members.
  • Profit Sharing, Not Control: Investor shares attract a decided share of profits, offering an appealing return to investors without risking the demutualisation of the cooperative.

  3. Engagement and Promotion: Utilise our platform to effectively promote your campaign, engaging with a community of potential investors who value cooperative principles.
