Display Europe is in the process of transforming into a cooperative, embracing a cooperative model recognized for its dedication to members and sustainable value creation within the platform. Unlike traditional venture capital-funded platforms, cooperatives prioritize the interests of their members and reinvest jointly created value into the platform, fostering a business strategy that upholds the platform’s service quality without excessive commercialization.
