    HI THERE!We are happy to welcome you to our shareNL INSIGHTS. Read all about the rapid and exciting developments in the

    collaborative economy, and of course, how to get in on the action and join our inspiring events. In this issue you will

    learn about how this phenomenon challenges markets concerning startups, government regulation and insurance, but

    also how these issues inspire innovative solutions: these are just a few of the topics that were addressed at the The

    Next Web conference where shareNL co-organized the Collaborative Economy Stage. During the Sharing City Dinner

    that followed, which was organized by the City of Amsterdam and co-hosted by shareNL, new interdisciplinary insights

    were formed about how municipalities are experiencing changes, and how to tackle disruptions and regulation

    issues. Moreover, we have some interesting shareNL updates for you, such as our very own book 'Share', a European

    Parliament video of our Ananda Groag speaking about shared mobility in rural areas and of course a link to our newest

    webinar!

    THE SHARING CITY RECIPE: WHAT'S THE SECRET INGREDIENT? In Amsterdam, the

    sharing economy is here to stay. The growth in locally to globally operating sharing initiatives is remarkable to say the

    least. Since 2015, Amsterdam is the first Sharing City in Europe, and as such, the progressive leader in an expanding

  • field. But since even the sharing economy is still an unknow term to some people, lets take a step back: what exactly

    IS a sharing city? First and foremost, the Amsterdam city government, in collaboration with shareNL, is determined to

    support and launch a variety of sharing projects that support citizens in their daily lives, making the city friendlier and

    more livable at the same time. What are these projects? Just to name a few: logistics will be supported to use capacity

    more efficiently, avoiding stress, traffic and pollution at the same time; car sharing will be massively promoted to

    relieve the city of excess car traffic, and sharing platforms are now working together with the government on how to

    support the new inhabitants of Amsterdam with moving and settling in the cities. But Sharing Cities need one secret

    ingredient to make all of these projects work.

    A LEAP FOR REGULATION While the collaborative economy enables people to earn an income with their

    unused resources, how does the government make sure the sharers keep paying their taxes? Italy has found a

    solution and addressed the regulatory and fiscal issues through introducing a category where you will be taxed at a

    flat rate until a certain cap. Meanwhile Amsterdam taxes Airbnb users and Belgium taxes the whole sharing economy

    alltogether.

    MaRS SUGGESTS TO REVAMP REGULATION

    CATCH UP The collaborative economy is also causing rapid reorganizations in insurances. Start-up Easicar found

    a way to help Uber drivers insure their car, and flourished within months - a sign that traditional insurance

    companies need to catch up with new markets, according to car sharing platform Hiyacar.

    Moreover, Google continues to merge into Ubers' lane by starting Waze Carpool, and other players like Apple, Toyota,

    and Volskwagen are also entering the field.

    WHO BENEFITS? Berlins unique charm attracts more and more visitors. Locals fear this trend will cost the city

    its character and make life unaffordable. The City of Berlin now decided to take action and ban unintended use of

  • housing space. This affects space-sharing platforms like Airbnb. Berliners are split: Renters think of the regulation as

    backward while residents welcome the restriction. Locals on the rural areas in the Netherlands, on the other hand,

    seem to welcome Airbnb with open arms.
