In this conversation, we will learn more about the question of scale in a cooperative digital economy. How can this ecosystem scale in a different, more sustainable way? How do we solve problems of global coordination, competences, and capital through a cooperative model? Should platform co-ops strive to scale? If yes, should they scale up, out, wide, or deep? Which good practice models exist? How do cooperatives federate? What is needed to successfully grow the social franchise model? How can we create cooperative network effects? Is a cooperative monopoly desirable?
