Koos makes it simpler for communities to have a stake for business

In the future, a strong community will be the ‘beating heart’ of every successful business.

Businesses and brands will be created, and grow, side-by-side with their community, contributors, and customers – a wide circle of stakeholders who feel and act like owners.

Until now, building these authentic relationships with communities – and effectively incentivizing them was time-consuming, legally complex, and expensive.

That’s why we created Koos – in Estonian, Koos means ‘together’ and ‘alongside’!

We turn business success into a shared cause

With Koos, equity-like stakes can be earned (and owned) by anyone who supports a business, not just a small group of shareholders. Returns are related to the contribution that each person makes to the business’s success.

It’s win win.

Businesses gain from the energy and effectiveness of invested communities delivering valuable growth. And communities gain from the opportunities and returns that come from having a real stake in a business’s success.

We believe that in time Koos will contribute to a more equitable distribution of business wealth. In time, people may only choose to support, recommend, and buy from businesses that they have a stake in – brands whose success they are invested in, and who they are aligned with ethically.

Our mission

By 2025, our aim is to deliver over €1bn in value back to communities from the businesses they have helped support and grow.
“At Koos we believe technologies can help build a more equitable society. Koos offers companies a new way to achieve their business goals more efficiently by delivering greater value to all their stakeholders – while also improving their financial and social impact performance.”
