CO|OP by NC&A

WELCOME to CO|OP by NC&A

The International Co-operative Alliance defines a cooperative – or a co-op – as “an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise.”

In other words, cooperatives are created by people who have a specific need and who are willing to work together to operate and organise a company that will meet that need.

It takes a village to create the perfect collaboration and in recent years, connection and collaboration have come to define the optimal way brands do business. From corporates consulting with their artistic counterparts to mashups of fashion and function, new networks of creativity and commerce are being built locally and abroad.

However, sometimes even the best collaboration ideas die in execution – and through our work in the field, we have figured out why and subsequently, how to prevent any failures to launch.
