The more you put in, the more you could get back
Tokens represent equity-like stakes (a bit like shares) – so they can grow as the business does (but also fall!).
These brands are already sharing their future – by offering their communities a stake in their business.
Rewarding their music-loving community.
Giving equity for successfully converted B2B referrals.
Sharing equity with their drivers and customers.
Thanking people who recommend their guest-friendly tech to new hotels.
Getting conscious influencers involved in their mission.
Many businesses and start-ups rely on their communities and customers to help them succeed.
Whether you’re hosting on Air bnb, writing reviews for Trip Advisor or telling a friend how great the latest app is - you’re already helping businesses grow.
But until now all you could get back were reward points, discounts or most likely - nothing at all!
Koos puts communities at the centre and allows businesses to easily reward them for their input with stakes that are equity-linked.
This means they are linked to the value of the business – so can grow if and when the business does – turning your initial investment of time or energy into a real financial return.
Koos community-led programmes are offered by businesses and brands who use our platform to incentivize and reward their valuable communities.
If you’re thinking of supporting a Koos-powered business or are part of a community incentivized by Koos – here’s how it works.
Each business’s Koos programme will have a different community and goal at its heart. But the goal will be related to a big business ambition – for example reach 200,000 users, get new business investment, or start making a profit.
It’s up to the business and community to reach the goal together!
This fund will usually be a % of its total equity – (the total value of the business). Community members can then earn tokens which represent a stake in this equity fund. We call these equity-linked stakes.
An equity-linked stake is one which is linked to the overall valuation of the business. A bit like a stock or share.
This means that the real-life value of the stakes you earn can go up (or down) with the value of the business.
So your support is a genuine investment in businesses that you think will do well: everything you do to help them grow can contribute to a higher valuation – and higher returns for you!
All you need to supply is your phone and email address. You’ll then be registered with Koos. You don’t need a crypto wallet or anything else.
An impactful action is something that helps a business towards its wider goal. These actions will vary widely – from being an early adopter or loyal customer, through to recommending their business, or doing specific tasks to support them.
The value of these actions will vary depending on its value to the business.
e.g They may reward a referral by giving 1 token. But if that referral converts to a new client, you might get 10!
Business may let you know which actions are valuable to them and how many tokens those actions are worth.
Impactful actions are automatically rewarded with tokens – and Koos - will legally and independently – record all your actions and the tokens you receive for them.
You can track your tokens and see an estimate of value in real time by logging into Koos.
How do I increase the value of my stake?
However you can only realise this value when the business and community hit their common goal. This is the payout.
When the business hits the agreed goal, it triggers payout for all the participating community members. At this point you can ‘cash-in’ your stake for its equity-linked value with the business. Congratulations!
To deliver over €1bn in value back to communities from the businesses they have helped support and grow!
