Future Equity Crowdfunding for Cooperative Spin-Outs

Facilitating Spin-Outs with Strategic Financing

At Coop Exchange we’re building a platform that will support spin-outs from existing cooperatives or mutuals, helping them to become independent cooperatives through equity crowdfunding. This innovative approach will, once launched allow parent organizations to spin out divisions or projects into separate entities, financed through the issuance of investor shares.

Empowering Spin-Outs

  • Strategic Independence: Our platform will be designed so that it assists divisions within cooperatives or mutuals to gain independence as separate cooperative entities.
  • Tailored Financing Solutions: We’re building processes that facilitate the raising of capital through equity crowdfunding, enabling these new cooperatives to kickstart their operations and growth.

Investor Shares for Spin-Outs

  • Issuing Investor Shares: Once our platform goes live the new cooperatives will be able to issue restricted voting or non-voting investor shares, attracting investment while maintaining the cooperative’s core democratic principles.
  • Profit Participation: Investors in these shares receive a portion of the profits, aligning financial returns with the success of the cooperative.

Likely to be suitable for

  • Divisions Seeking Autonomy: divisions within existing cooperatives or mutuals that are ready to operate independently but require financial support to do so.
  • Innovative Cooperative Projects: innovative projects within a larger cooperative structure that have the potential to thrive as independent entities.

Our Future Process

  1. Understanding the Spin-Out Vision: We’re building processes such that they will allow us to work closely with the parent cooperative or mutual to understand the goals and potential of the spin-out.
  2. Campaign Development: Craft a compelling crowdfunding campaign that showcases the spin-out’s vision, potential, and investment appeal.
  3. Legal and Financial Structuring: Guide the spin-out in structuring the investment offer, ensuring legal compliance and alignment with cooperative values.
  4. Engagement and Capital Raising: Launch the crowdfunding campaign, engaging with a wide network of potential investors to secure the necessary capital.
