Collaboration at core of worker-owned co-op

Collaboration at core of worker-owned co-op

Loomio is an app that helps people have discussions and make decisions together.


Founded in 2012, NZ-based Loomio is open source software, built by a worker-owned cooperative social enterprise.

Executive Director, Michael Elwood-Smith, says Loomio believes that more groups practising effective, inclusive decision-making can change organisational dynamics at a global scale.

“We envision a better experience of collaboration that feels great, and achieves better outcomes with less time and effort. Loomio exists to make it easy for anyone, anywhere, to participate in decisions that affect their lives,” Michael says.
