This week we hosted another energetic meetup on the collaborative economy and a new disrupting technology. This time the Internet of Things. We learned about a bunch of new appliances that have the potential to make the sharing of all kinds of assets frictionless. Looking into the future we expect that many of the startup companies we have been working with over the past years, could benefit from the Internet of Things as it offers great opportunities for both peer-to-peer marketplaces and traditional companies willing to offer their products as a service.
In this month's insights you can read about:
- Publications in Huffington Post, NRC and Hospitality Net
- The key to unlocking cities
- Participation, privacy and power in the sharing economy
- The 'Share and Rule' episode about Airbnb with Harmen van Sprang
