Sharecon behind the scenes: Teresa Viertel

Foto TeresaWho are you in one sentence?

I see myself as a positive, multi-cultural person who is motivated to do something meaningful – even if only in my own small world.

What is your background?

In 2012 I finished my Masters Degree in Marketing and having worked during the studies in Product Marketing, Dialog-Marketing and Event Management, I now found my path working for a 360 degree-marketing agency as a Project Manager for Events & Promotions. I got involved in the topic of the Sharing Economy while I wrote my Master Thesis on the possible integration of a clothing Sharing Platform within a traditional company – it’s interesting to see how things evolved towards more awareness and acceptance in regards to this topic.

What is Sharing Economy for you?

Essentially it’s a new lifestyle for me – a way to bring people together and find opportunities against unnecessary consumption.

Whats the future of the Sharing Economy?

Hopefully it will be the new normal and more traditional companies will see it as a potential to integrate or change to a sharing business model.

If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?

Open people’s eyes so that they can see how wasteful and resource unfriendly we are living nowadays.
