Introducing Honeycombhousing

Honeycombhousing is a social/cultural-housing platform to connect international students with homeowners on peer-to-peer basis in Sweden. Sanne Toonen (founder of Honeycombhousing) explained: 'It’s the social aspect that makes the difference. It’s best described as 'Fika'. The Swedish expression for coffee breaks that’s more about socializing than drinking coffee. This Swedish tradition shaped Honeycombhousing to what it is today and sets them apart from other services in providing housing for international students.'

The Collaborative Economy & Blockchain meetup

This meetup was a deep-dive into the future of the (collaborative) economy, and the future of society. While shareNL has been involved in the sharing/collaborative economy for quite some time now, the blockchain was a relatively new topic. With the aim of reshaping society, it was time to address the potential role of blockchain platform services in the current society. To answer the question of whether the blockchain will live up to its promise to enable a true peer-to-peer network, Pieter van den Glind (shareNL), Samantha van der Bos (shareNL), Perry Smit (Innovationlab of the Chamber of Commerce), Chris Huls (Rabobank), Jeroen Rijnbout (BITONIC), and Robert-Reinder Nederhoed (blandlord.com) provided us with insights into the possibilities of blockchain technology.
