I have just read about the Mozilla incubator project - do you think meet.coop could be a good candidate for their funding and support?
It’s an interesting option considering we:
- have someone who is willing to participate in their programme during a few months, learn, work on the sustainability model of Meet.coop
- agree on how the funds are being used if we’d be selected
- have someone (or a few committed people) able to craft a proposal and present it there
If that’s doable, then I think yes it would be very good for the above three things and for the exposure it may give us.
my 2 cents
I would sign up . There is even the platform cooperativism course coming up starting on June 1st - why not??
Maybe you could prepare a brief proposal and present it to them?
Hmm upon further reading, maybe this is not for us:
The Startup Studio is for startups. We expect the entire team to be all-in, working full-time on the project during the three months of the program and beyond.
There is nothing bad about commitments and passion but I think this is more suitable for those investor-driven startups.
The whole thing about coops is that we take a lot more wholistic approach - rather than a few people get super busy, I think we should strive to involve more people, be creative and offer simple and effective solutions.
