This means our people have a say in how the business is run and benefit from the increase in the business’s value over time.
In practice, employees own at least 50% of Kinectid through a Kinectid Employee Ownership Trust, and through direct ownership of individual shares. The remaining shares are held by the company’s founding team, with a portion set aside for potential future investors.
We’ve chosen an employee-ownership model because we believe in creating a fairer society in which wealth is distributed more equally.
Kinectid’s Board of Directors includes our founders, our executive leadership team and independent advisors.
