My team at AnyShare, thanks to FairShares model, introduced a new cooperative type to the United States of America in early 2016. We are the first completely cooperative business in US history! (ref 1) Now, every type of stakeholder is included in sharing voting and profits. A huge thank you is due to Rory Ridley Duff, who advised us for over a year in this transition.
From the AnyShare Website, this sums it up:
For over a decade, we’ve asked ourselves how our business can enhance everyone’s life… from Day 1. Today, it’s common for multi-national corporations to extract value from local communities. This does not have to be the case.
Our path is revolutionary.
AnyShare Society is the first “Complete Cooperative” in the United States. We are the first to structure ourselves so every group we impact can co-own, vote, and receive profits from our success. It is not business as usual, which aims to widen the gap between the rich and poor.
We invite you to join us and co-create a business which will be a model in itself for businesses of the future. By doing this, you’re doing more than just supporting AnyShare Society… you’re creating an abundant future for us all!
