Co-operative Technologists

This wiki site was set up at our founding event, 14th - 17th November 2016 at Wortley Hall, where 55 co-operators from 18 co-ops came together to form CoTech, a network of tech co-operatives mostly based in the UK.

Member Co-ops

All current members of CoTech are listed under the members section of the CoTech website, however some co-ops have yet to be added to the site, see also the Members wiki table.


Please add to the Collaboration page when a Cotech co-op works with another CoTech co-op.
