A fresh start

We could not have started the year better after such an inspiring evening. Our last Meetup of the year was a full house with speakers representing a variety of stakeholders. Critical reflections from the press by Kaya Bouma (Volkskrant), inspiring ways for traditional players to catch up by Martin Smit (Sandd), how the city of Amsterdam will continue to be a sharing city by Nanette Schippers (City of Amsterdam), several pitches from new start-ups, and even the captain of 'pirate' ship Valparaíso: everybody had their say. Which sometimes brought forth quite some discussion. But that is exactly what we aim for at shareNL: to exchange knowledge and viewpoints between different stakeholders. Learn from each other. The drinks after the Meetup therefore quickly turned into a buzzing room filled with new connections, ideas, and opportunities. It gave us all an even better chance to get ready for the future of the collaborative economy in this crisp and fresh new year. Want to know exactly how? Read the key take-aways of the Meetup here. We are happy to have so many different parties around us that inspire us with their innovative and pioneering developments. Of course, as always, we strive to offer plenty of relevant inspiration in return. Our resolution for 2017. Happy sharing! - the shareNL team
