I have been building a platform that embodies many RxC mission objectives. I was unaware of RxC until last month. I found this organization when researching an application of QF for community developers.
I am setting this up as a user owned cooperative. Our attorney (who specializes in worked owned cooperatives) has suggested starting a LLC to hold software IP and pay staff. I’m not keen on this option as a major part of the entire project is user ownership. Radical transparency is a core value. I could just make the details of the LLC public knowledge. But somehow this seems like a lesser solution.
The reason for the suggestion is the time required to draft a charter and bylaws for a user owned cooperative. There are plenty of worker owned coops. But I have yet to find one that is user owned.
Does anyone know of one? Or even a cooperative that is close whose bylaws could be modified to work.
