The implementation of a revolutionary idea – like changing the handling of data fundamentally by developing a "Super App" – is like preparing for a mission to unknown realms. It requires a balanced cooperation between all parties, a good plan for funding, competent leaders and partners who support the mission and are ready to go all the way. Here we are, prepared and ready for our mission!
For the success of our mission, it is elementary to reconcile the needs of citizens and businesses in order to achieve a balanced cooperation between society and economy.
For every mission, funding is a crucial part and one of the keys to success. Our funding works via transaction fees incurred on each exchange of services.
Achieving goals works better together rather than doing it alone. This is the basic idea of every cooperative. Fundamental decisions are made by members in the General Assembly. As investor you are a member having one vote regardless of how many shares you own. This protects the cooperative from the dominance of individual majority owners, and also from "hostile takeovers".
polypoly Cooperative is a European cooperative, more precisely an SCE. This stands for Societas Cooperativa Europaea. Any European citizen over the age of 18 can invest to become a member supporting our common vision. Like every cooperative registered and controlled in the cooperative register, we have a statute in which all legal framework conditions are regulated.
A complex mission requires experienced heads who contribute significantly to the success of the mission with their expertise and dedication. Here is an excerpt:
