Collaborative consumption is an idea that has exploded since it was first covered by Time Magazine as one of their ‘10 ideas to save the world’ back in 2011. The idea is at the core of the hugely popular AirBnB, and now forms a central aspect of fast-growing start-up, Hire Space (www.hirespace.com). Collaborative Consumption asks individuals to share their own possessions, partly through a desire to be part of a sharing community, but more critically due to a need to get more, financially, out of their possessions. Someone who owns a home no longer needs to leave their largest resource standing empty when they go on holiday, instead they can earn an income and be part of Airbnb’s dynamic community. Hire Space works on the same idea, but for communal spaces and small businesses; giving organisations the chance to gain economically from their underused office spaces, sports facilities, recording studios, or even roof terraces.
