Platform Coops Berlin: Building structured support

A workshop for people who either work within a coop or plan to create one.
Facilitated by Céline Viardot and Alaexandre Sourzac-Lami, Comit Paris-Berlin.

Whether you have been managing a Genossenschaft for years or you are just planning to create one, you are warmly invited to join the workshop!
Founding and developing a coop implies a lot of challenges: defining and setting up a governance model, coping with the legal requirements, adjusting the business-model to the cooperative specifics…
Although some experts, organizations and consultancies out there have the technical knowledge and the experience necessary to tackle these issues, it is difficult to identify who can help and how, at the right stage of development.
As the Platform Coop movement develops in Berlin, there is a growing need for a more structured support between and for coops. How can we coordinate the exchange of experience between existing cooperative organizations? What are the main subjects on which coops need support? How to identify and list all consultants and experts who might help? These are the questions we will try and find the answers to together during the workshop.

Agenda:

Needs: we will catalog and structure the needs and questions of coop managers and founders
Existing solutions: we will identify all the knowledge and experience we can call upon
Connections: we will imagine and draft all possible forms of supports, measure the investment needed to set them up and their impact in order to sort them and select the most efficient ones.
