MyCoolClass (MCC) grew from an idea to a fully-fledged, platform enabled co-op in around 12 months. The founders are based in Poland, Malaysia, the US and South Africa. They have worked flat out - so far, unpaid - to make their vision of a new, worker owned and controlled learning platform a reality. The UK was chosen as the preferred country of registration because it has an internationally recognised co-op society legal model, and at the same time fairly light-touch regulation.
MCC has already recruited 300 teachers into potential membership, and the Solidfund distribution is designed to cover marketing costs for a crucial recruitment scaling up, after which the co-op will work to attract more substantial funding, potentially through a loan stock or share issue.
