What is "sharing economy"? There has been a tremendous growth in the number of sharing platforms globally. They are becoming increasingly popular and in some cases, controversial.
Is "sharing economy" the answer to promoting sustainability and innovation? What does it entail to put this concept into practice?
We are privileged to have invited some of Hong Kong's prime examples of sharing start-ups to share with us their inspiring stories and the challenges that they face.
