Ananda Groag

Ananda Groag works for shareNL - the international knowledge and network platform for the sharing economy based in Amsterdam. As a shared mobility expert she consults, presents, researches and brainstorms about the future of (shared) transportation, MaaS and related topics.

In 2015, she brought together 42 organisations in a private-public partnership to grow car sharing together. Amongst other projects, she introduced a yearly Benelux car sharing conference and launched and manages an independent news & knowledge website about car sharing (autodelen.info).

She developed an interest for mobility at TomTom, working with navigation, maps, fleetmanagement, real-time traffic data and the taxi industry.

Ananda practises what she preaches and does not own a car. She seamlessly combines different modes of transportation.
