Konsultkooperativet

Fria teknik- och managementkonsulter

Sweden's first cooperative* for self-employed consultants


Sveriges första kooperativ för egenföretagande konsulter

Konsultkooperativet is an honest, democratic and open cooperative for freelancing technology and management consultants. We welcome all consultants who want real power to change, who are tired of brokers who charges too much, and of partnership companies, where all are not treated equal. Konsultkooperativet does not have any majority owners, or unfair terms - you are welcome to check our by-laws!

Sounds interesting? Contact us to apply for membership.

* According to the definition by the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA)


Why cooperative instead of a limited company?


Konsultkooperativet is an "ekonomisk förening", this type of organisation was chosen since it makes it simple to secure equality, democracy and transparency. In an "ekonomisk förening" every memeber has one vote each. A member can never get more power over the organisation than anyone else.


What happens with the organisation's profit?


Konsultkooperativet brokes assignments to its member companies. For this service the organisation charges a commision fee based on invoiced hours. The profit the organisation makes is paid back to the member companies pro rata the member's revenue through the organisation. To qualify for pay back of commision fees, the member must have been a member for at least one year, and also have paid a stake to the organisation. After the pay back, the goal for the organisation is to have a commisson level of less than 6%.

According to the organisation's by-laws, the organisation should make zero profit.
