What is the session about?
Over the past year, a group of AEs have been exploring the potential of the Cooperative model for the AE Entrepreneurship. In any Cooperative setup, the business model and membership structures are the most important components that must be defined well. A draft of these documents has been prepared, and we would like to have interested AEs in the SIG to review and discuss. Come join us in this 5 Oct 2020 session, the fifth meeting of SIG (CET Entrepreneurship) in 2020 and let us co-create the first-of-its-kind AE Cooperative in Singapore.
1/ We will kick off with a recap of the key concepts in a cooperative setup.
2/ Next, we will introduce the first co-operative we will set up. This is a holding company model that will focus on investing in ATOs (n.k.a RTPs) for members to have influence over the channel to market.
3/ Finally, we will introduce the second co-operative we will set up. This will be a platform cooperative which will eventually become the RTP itself and utilise an IT platform to reach out to the market.
4/ We will then have break-out sessions for the SIG participants to review and discuss the proposed business models and membership structures. Note that this is only a preliminary discussion and serve as non-binding inputs for the pro-tem committee to consider. The pro-tem committees of the cooperatives will be formally formed in Oct 2020.
First-comers to the SIG are most welcome as you will be able to pick up the knowledge of this Entrepreneurship initiative easily within the session itself.
