This meetup was a hit for anyone interested in Blockchain technology. 125 people enrolled to the meetup - showing a huge interest in new technologies and how they are connected to the collaborative economy. That's why we're organising another meetup in June on the Internet of Things and the collaborative economy. Bringing together several experts in the field, as well as building a choc-chain, shareNL was able to introduce Amsterdam start-ups and other players to the Blockchain technology and facilitate dialogue around the future of this amazing technology.

WHAT CAN OUR YOUNGSTERS SHARE? shareNL opened up their doors to ambitious Lenka van Amerongen.  Our mission is to work with the whole playing field in the collaborative and sharing economy, and one of those players is the young generation. They are the future, and they should also be included and educated about what they can share. Thus, Lenka had one task and one task only - to understand the sharing economy, and communicate it to her peers - which she did through this awesome video. It's in Dutch, but hopefully, there will be more knowledge out there for the youngsters of our world soon!
Last Friday Sam gave a crash course ‘Sharing Economy’ for digital strategists of Antwerp’s cultural and creative sector. (Her home town!) The presentation was followed by a workshop where the different groups developed their own sharing concept by implementing the sharing principles in their existing organisation, products and services. If you want to explore the possibilities for your organization, you can contact our shareNL expert team.
We were recently joined by the amazing Sarah and Giulia. They are both doing research at shareNL, but on very different topics. Giulia is focusing on the tourism industry (and of course from the point of view of the collaborative economy). It's an important field, and she will be an expert in the field after her internship! As a last year commercial economics, marketing and sales management student, Sarah is writing her final thesis with focus on sales and marketing. Oh, and both are recently new Amsterdammers - welcome to our home town!
