Coops empowering the gig economy
Joshua Danielson, Loconomics Cooperative, Inc.
The “gig” economy has brought convenience, challenged ideas on trust, and created a new class of workers. We’ll explore how cooperative models can empower workers and shift wealth inequality. Uptima Business Bootcamp is an innovative network of member-owned business accelerators dedicated to providing entrepreneurs with greater access to hands-on education, resources and community to create thriving businesses. Loconomics Cooperative has reverse engineered the business models of existing gig platforms, creating a just and sustainable model that gives full platform ownership and control to independent workers in various professions, ranging from home and child care to small business services.
