Events in the collaborative economy


Every year, we organise and co-organise events relevant for the collaborative economy and the future of the new economy. We do this for, or together with, governments, companies, startups, knowledge institutions and individuals. 


What we can do for you

With having organised and co-organised over 25 events within the collaborative and sharing economy, from large car sharing symposiums to intimate meetups, we have knowledge, experience and the network to help you with your event.



Our team consists of globally recognised experts in the collaborative and sharing economy field. We work with governments, companies, organisations, knowledge institutions and startups and we frequently travel abroad to give keynotes and workshops for events and other happenings (Have a look at our experts here). Research is a big part of shareNL, where we look into the latest developments in the collaborative economy in order to provide up-to-date insights.

Events in 2017

RE:shaping work

This year, we are co-organizing the first international, multidisciplinary and thought leadership event to redesign work in the platform economy.

What does the new world of work mean to the workers themselves, to companies, governments and to our economic future?  We want to engage on a conversation to shape how this new economy will transform the world. The aim of the conference is to offer a highly interactive program by having creative sessions where individuals will debate various topics, have an opportunity to visit organizations in Amsterdam, but also meet some of the "gig workers“.




shareNL organises an average of three meetups per year, covering a wide range of topics. For the present year we have prepared a series of Meetups under the broader theme of ‘’The Future of the Collaborative Economy’’ .

We tend to underestimate the speed of how this technologies will revolutionize the sharing economy and society as a whole. We see an urgent need to start a conversation on these topics to seize all the opportunities they offer. For us, is not about the technology, it is about the people.
