Calling anybody with experience with creating international multi-stakeholder cooperatives:

We're thinking about that form of org for valueflo.ws/ which is now being worked on, used by, and implemented by groups in the US and several European nations as of now. Some Canadians were involved earlier and might return. People in other parts of North and South America and Africa have connected a bit.

So how do we do something like that?

What are the hurdles? Who are good advisors?

@bhaugen i was vaguely involved around the peripheral of an organisation, with members from various European countries that incorporated in the UK, as theres no nationality requirements for members/participants in UK corporate bodies. Banking needed some consideration (was solved by either a UK bank € account or an account with a European bank as most money in and out was in €s).

Im normally somewhat resistant to incorporating unless a legal body is needed for limited liability or to own stuff…

In the case of valueflo.ws it's neither of those issues. More like longevity and participatory governance of the project. It has a growing set of user groups and the whole thing is dependent on two old people.

A multi-stakeholder cooperative would be an appropriate organizational structure. Don't know how formal it needs to be.
