Seed-fund PlatformX (platform coop hybrid)?
Based on a recent discussion in another Loomio group (Funding the Commons Transition), @graham2 has expressed openness in supporting PlatformX, the world's first-and-only online jobs platform of its kind.
Are other Platform 6 members also willing to support and provide seed funding for PlatformX?
If successful, I envision this seed funding for PlatformX will eventually jumpstart Platform 6's common/funding pool.
Funding ask: £8,000 to £10,000 (£100-£125/Platform6 member; assuming 80 members)
Return: 20% interest (I'm happy to offer venture capital-like returns to Platform 6 specifically to help further coop development)...
...plus I'll add Platform 6 as a Founding Supporter to our website's Hall of Gratitude page.
If some of you would be willing to donate or invest individually (£300-£2000 or more), please let me know. We'll add you as Founding Supporter to our Hall of Gratitude page too.

We have volunteer advisors from UK, Canada, US, Belgium/Thailand.
Should our collaboration here be successful, I'd be happy to include Platform 6 in my presentation at the Platform Coop Conference in New York this coming November!
Thanks for reading!
