I’m Ben from dcdc.io. We’re a new Leeds based digital cooperative and we want to join CoTech.
Our coop runs as a software consultancy and we are the creators of a soon to be launched cooperative friendly distributed ledger. We also have an privacy product that incorporates some really exciting wearable tech (that we are allowed to talk about very soon).
There are currently 4 of us founding members working regularly on our projects and we hope to start hiring some full time people during the summer.
As well as joining CoTech we want to reach out to the wider cooperatives community and invite people to join us in organising a hackathon event for Cooperatives Fortnight in the summer. We want to host an event(s) in Leeds, that will combine talks from people across cooperative and socially responsible tech with a 48 hackathon.
Are there cooperatives in our local area that would want to join us in organising this event, and, are there tech cooperatives in other parts of the UK (or world even) that want to make this a synced up multi-venue event?
