Loconomics is a cooperative of service professionals (massage therapists, dog walkers, florists, you name it) who want to find clients, help clients find them, and support local business—without middlemen or far-off investors. We’re based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our mission is to use technology, shared ownership, and community to strengthen local economies. We provide tools, a marketplace, and community to our owners, empowering them to thrive in their work as local service professionals. We provide their clients an app where they can discover and directly book local service professionals safely and easily, without middle-men.
Our vision is a world without middle-people where stakeholders of products and services can come together to create platform cooperatives to serve their various needs with special attention paid to those without power and privilege.
We’ve spent almost three years helping shape our cooperative’s bylaws and business strategy to address the needs, motivations, and interests of our stakeholders and are very happy to help brainstorm for anyone else’s situation.
