Let’s Focus on Startups: Is Sharing the Future of Business?

In the recent years we have been witnessing the emerging of one impressive amount of startups, created on the idea of sharing. This business model is very successful with companies like Zipcar, Task Rabbit, Airbnb, Girl Meets Dress and many others. As many big companies start to lose the trust of their customer for one reason or another, many more people begin to look for the services of smaller, newly created and innovative businesses in the local markets. This fact, along with other factors, shaped the potential of startup growth in many developed and emerging markets. The aim of these businesses is to make sharing irresistible and be able to scale it. It is an important topic, very interesting for all entrepreneurs, who want to bring value to their users and to create disruptive businesses. This is why here we will introduce you to the “mesh”!
