Why we started Level

Level is a project aiming to create a new streamlined and attractive way of forming a democratically owned business, designed for the future of work.

More and more people are working independently – and often enjoying the benefits and flexibility of that way of working. But when it comes to starting a business together as independent professionals, the structures available are either based on outdated and unfair principles, or can entail a lot of work to establish. The array of options available can also be overwhelming.

We designed Level to provide a single, quick and simple way of starting a business which independent professional can use as a vehicle for working together, based on equal, democratic ownership, while retaining their autonomy and flexibility.

Funding for this project was provided by Co-operatives UK, in association with Apparatus.
