A DIGITAL COOPERATIVE
Discover our history and principles
PopSolutions was born in 2015 from the collective effort of web designers, programmers, system architects, journalists and photographers with the objective of, by combining their skills, offer services to small and medium-sized companies, institutes, associations, cooperatives, third sector organizations and Individual Micro Entrepreneurs (MEIs) in the areas of information and communication technology.
This work, built collaboratively and combining the different skills of its members, allowed PopSolutions to conquer clients in Brazil and abroad in its early years. At this time, we have already served more than 100 companies from different segments in several Brazilian states and Uruguay.
Cooperate to grow
To deliver the best result to our customers and partners, we are based on the idea of cooperativism. For each new PopSolutions project, we look for highly qualified professionals who can add value to the product or service we offer. The team's multidisciplinarity plays a key role in our creative process, as we believe that the integration of individuals with different abilities working with the same purpose generates positive results.
In addition, one of our principles is that the management of the cooperative must be democratic and transparent, enabling everyone to bring new ideas, present proposals and collaborate so that intelligent solutions are implemented, always aiming at the collective good.
Below, we list the principles of cooperativism elaborated by the International Cooperative Alliance and to which PopSolutions adheres:
Free membership - it means that the cooperative must have its doors open to admit members and the interested party is free to apply for admission to it in accordance with certain conditions already provided for by law.
Democratic control - the management of the cooperatives is carried out by the members themselves, who, democratically gathered in a general assembly, elect by vote those who will form the board of directors.
Management of administrator - it must be subject to what the cooperative statute sends. Associates can supervise the performance of the directors through delegates who are part of the different administrative bodies.
Cooperative education - associates have the duty to prepare themselves socially and professionally to effectively develop the commitments assumed as partners.
Interest limited to capital - for the operation of a cooperative capital is needed because, although it is a non-profit company, no company works without capital. It is understood by interest limited to capital, a fixed interest that does not depend on the greater or lesser amount of utilities.
Surplus distribution - the surplus resulting from operations carried out by the cooperative association belongs to the members and must be distributed in such a way as to avoid the profits of one partner at the expense of another.
Cooperative integration - participants of a cooperative must be integrated, which means that they must compose a whole of its parts.
