Who Can Take Part?

Anyone with an idea of how we can create additional value from existing South-Australian based resources is invited to take part in Share. We want to hear from people with ideas for sharing economy enterprises and organisations or individuals who own or control underused resources.

Share is an opportunity to receive financial and other support and recognition for a great idea. We want to help shape new ideas and turn them into viable initiatives. With over $100,000 Share is a great opportunity to progress your collaborative economy idea.

What is the Collaborative Economy?

The sharing or collaborative, economy is a system that unlocks the value of existing idle or wasted resources through marketplaces or networks.It matches people with a ‘need’ to people with a ‘have’ (a resource), generating additional social, economic or environmental value.

Share is encouraging ideas that use idle or underused resources in the public, private or not-for-profit sectors.
