The collaborative economy is a fast growing phenomenon and brings visible and detectable changes to our society. At shareNL we believe in the opportunities and chances of the collaborative economy, as well as the challenges they may bring. It's a young, local and international phenomenon at the same time, where The Netherlands play an active part with for example Amsterdam as the first 'Sharing City' of Europe. shareNL's mission is to further develop the collaborative economy and doing so we work with different agents in the field, such as existing startups, corporates, governments and knowledge/research institutions. We give presentations, workshops; organize events, meetups and round table discussions; offer advice to companies and governments. We also do our own research in the field of the collaborative economy and it's effects and impact.
