A cooperative is particularly suitable for collaborative entrepreneurship, regardless of the sector. It allows you to sell your own skills easily and in a fairly risk-free manner without a large initial capital. You can set up a cooperative either as an individual or as a company. The key organs in a cooperative are a Board of Directors, the cooperative's General Meeting and a Managing Director.
