Just like traditional co-ops, platform co-ops are organisations that are owned and managed by their members. While traditional co-ops are normally based around a physical community of members, platform co-ops live online and are normally populated by online communities of members.

How does it compare with Uber, Airbnb and Deliveroo?

Have you heard of Fairmondo Co-op? The Open Co-op? or Modo Co-op?
