The thematic workshop ‘Doing business in the Sharing and Collaborative Economy’, organised by the National Documentation Centre for the StartupNow Forum, October 24 2019, was a great success. The workshop included examples of the collaborative ventures and Sharing Economy initiatives of recent years which cover not only existing social needs but also viable business.

The story of a modern agricultural co-operative, a prototype collaborative project in the heart of Athens and a movement to reduce food wastage were just some of the examples given.
