Sum-up of the Coworking Spain Conference and steps to follow

Con vistas a seguir avanzando en el objetivo de crear lo que sería el primer espacio de coworking en Ceuta, esta vez escribo en castellano directamente desde mi blog personal. Este espacio llamado LinkingPositive (que se traduciría algo así como enlazando en positivo) lo creé en 2012 cuando empecé a entusiasmarme ante el potencial que podría … Read more…

Signs of a need for change?

Crowdfunding

About a month and a half back, just after finishing my talk about the collaborative economy at my hometown in front of 70 Portuguese visitors (who had come due to the 600th anniversary of the Portuguese conquest of Ceuta), I remember that the president of the Agavi association (Antonio de Souza-Cardoso) immediately highlighted the importance … Read more…

We are all experts

share

This time I will be writing about a story that really caught my attention during a session at OuiShare Fest in Paris (the biggest global event about the collaborative economy).

Understanding and playing a role

By Kunal Chabaldas – @KChabaldas – #YourTurnChallenge – #day4 It seems like the writing habits at the nights of this challenging week are already turning into a routine.

By 1997 it appeared that mayor advances were on the way with the signing of the Kyoto protocol and growing investments in renewable energy during … Read more…

The practical sense of P2P service marketplaces

First of all I would like to thank you for all the encouragement and support received after the release of LinkingPositive. Since the feedback has been really good at the moment and some have liked the “style” of my first post, in this second one I will again start with a real life story. Around … Read more…

From Excess Stock to P2P marketplaces & Collaborative Consumption

I am from a small town called Ceuta in Spain. Due to its peculiar location at the tip of Africa overlooking the strait of Gibraltar, many families depend on wholesale businesses selling mainly to the North African market. My family has owned one of these businesses for the last 40 years or so, but we’re … Read more…
