Smart is Europe’s largest freelance cooperative with 120,000 members in nine countries and 45 cities. Our members are freelancers and represent a wide range of professions. All members have chosen to organize themselves together, cooperatively, instead of running individual companies and associations. This makes us strong by being many, can pool resources, facilitate collaborations and be part of a community.
