ENTHUSIASTIC NEWCOMERS AT NRCLIVE
The NRC Live event that shareNL co-hosted last week was a good opportunity to become fully immersed in the collaborative economy: especially for newcomers. Which is why it makes sense that the names of two certain big platforms in the collaborative economy (we think you know who) were mentioned over and over again. But isn’t the collaborative economy more than these two giants? Luckily, throughout the day a large variety of other platforms were discussed. New insights, going beyond the platforms that set the stage, were presented (you can find our key learnings here, and the pictures of the day here). We are glad to see that there were so many collaborative economy enthusiasts - both experts and new players in the field - and that the debate about challenges and opportunities has evolved enough to not just stick with the obvious: there is plenty of room and excitement to dive deep into even the smallest and most promising collaborative economy initiatives! Let's keep up the good work!
