What is the Sharing Economy?

The Sharing Economy is a globally emerging new economy, in which private people are enabled to share anything they own through technology, let it be products, knowledge or services, with other private people around them. The concept of the Sharing Economy is disrupting every industry from hotels (Airbnb), to services (Taskrabbit) to car rentals (Getaround). It is a gamechanging mental shift from a society focused on consumption to a society valuing access more than ownership and promoting a more sustainable and efficient use of resources. The Sharing Economy is also slowly taking off in Switzerland, we hope you will be a part of it.
