The Amsterdam Coop wants to change the way we work together in a co-working space. We’re a new tech oriented co-working concept that should stimulate collaboration within the co-working space. A desk is €300,- a month but if you work on Coop or sponsored projects you can bring your costs down and earn a free desk.
James is a sponsor, he has a new tech start-up and as programmers they can use some help designing their website. James creates a sponsored coop project and a designer can earn a free desk for 4 months
When a coop member sponsors or works on a sponsored project they will earn bonus credits. This credits can be used to entice members to work on coop projects that are available in the idea box.
After we run for a while off the profits of sponsored projects and maintain a healthy pool of community projects, we can being creating community projects that aim to generate a profit, say by providing paid products or services.
Participants can earn fair salaries, but any profits should go to the co-op. To represent their contribution to the common pot, bonus credits will be awarded to the members that contributed their time and credits to profitable projects.
