We believe that an economy based on sharing, collaboration and openness can solve many of the complex challenges the world faces.
An independent, not-for-profit organization founded in January 2012, OuiShare has rapidly evolved from a handful of Parisian enthusiasts to a global community spread across Europe, Latin America and the Middle East and is counting more than 400 Contributors and 40 Connectors.
In October 2013 we founded the local community of OuiShare Budapest and are working on empowering entrepreneurs, citizens and companies to embrace the collaborative economy through events, meetups and workshops.
How can this project contribute to SC Budapest
Collaborative Economy is enabled by new technologies and the effectiveness of social networks but it necessarily needs critical mass to thrive. For these two reasons, Collaborative Economy provides great opportunities for Budapest and Budapest provides the perfect conditions to move towards a more connected, open and sustainable vision represented by OuiShare. SC Budapest and OuiShare Budapest have a lot in common and can strengthen each other in achieving our missions.
