OP Group is a cooperative and the biggest bank in Finland. It's spending 400€ mil./year on digital development. It's also expanding to electric car renting and owning hospitals.
Googles 1$ mil. is as far as I know the biggest single investment to platform coops so far. That's less than 0.25% of OPs 400 mil budget.
- How would you like to see OP invest in platform coops?
- Would you be more likely to contribute to a platform coop project if it was funded by OP and not Google?
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
