From Blogger-Hosted Decor Classes to Starbucks Rideshares

These September 2016 share economy ideas consider the many different ways in which companies are looking to generate a better sense of community amongst consumers.

One way this is being done is through streamlined apps that allow people to rent products or services from one another in the most efficient way possible, as well as share ideas or interests. An example of this includes a virtual earphone-sharing app called 'Lisn' that makes it easier for users to swap their favorite songs in real-time -- meaning that they no longer have to struggle to share a single pair of earphones.

On the other hand, BonAppetour is an app that encourages people to connect with others in order to find a dinner host. The service is aimed primarily at open-minded travelers, who are likely to desire an authentic home-cooked experience during their time away from home. More examples like these, as well as those surrounding community-focused residences and crowdsourced designs are just a few of the others included in this collection of September 2016 share economy ideas.
