What we do?

BeShared identifies and selects European SMEs and social enterprises with high growth potential at a cross-border level and with an ability to benefit from the business model offered by the sharing economy. BeShared implies assessment of needs of the targeted European SMEs and social enterprises in order to effectively provide tailor-made trainings and coaching services. The project will also connect these SMEs with existing or new initiatives of shared platforms at regional, national or EU level and to organize and document events to discuss the development of the collaborative economy in Europe.

Starting on the 1st of December 2017, the project has a duration of 2 years and is supported by the European Commission.

«  Join us and support the first steps of the project!

After our kick-off meeting in Berlin and Brussels at the beginning of the year we are now starting the co-creation discussions with key-players and stakeholders of the sharing economy in the regions participating in the project. One of the main goals of BeShared is to review already existing initiatives and to sound out the challenges they are currently facing.

You are a cluster, a network, an association with knowledge related to the sharing economy? Please contact us and share your experience! Your inputs will help us to develop customized services dedicated to SMEs willing to implement innovative business models from the sharing economy and will also be included in a feedback addressed to the EU Commission.
