“There’s problems with traditional incubators that no-one in “startup land” wants to admit,” say the founders of incubator.coop. “The problem is simple: incubators serve investors, not incubatees.”
“That’s why we created incubator.coop – it addresses a real-world economic failure.
“Incubators can’t find enough fee’s from a target market that by definition is cash and resource poor. So incubators serve their investors as a deal-flow mechanism. They do not serve startups.
“The future – according to those that hang out in the Co-Op sector – belongs to collective endeavours. It belongs to Platform CoOps not Venture-Backed 2-sided marketplaces.
“The future is not a new AGL powered by wind and solar. The future belongs to hundreds if not thousands of community-level energy co-ops,” the group argues.
