Too Long; Didn't Read

Startups Need a New Option: Exit to Community: exit to community. In E2C, the company would transition from investor ownership to ownership by the people who rely on it most. The mechanism for co-ownership might be a cooperative, a trust, or even crypto-tokens. The community might own the whole company when the process is over, or just a substantial-enough part of it to make a difference. With the transition to community ownership, we get the best of both worlds—the startup, the startup, and the startup itself.
