The collaborative economy dominates the current labor market, so learning to use its benefits is vital for new entrepreneurs

In contemporary society, companies evolve towards innovation seeking support in technology and so-called ICT.

The clearest examples of this are shared cars or platforms such as Uber, Airbnb and even Netflix that can be shared with different users. Therefore, a company that works collaboratively also needs an online platform or application that facilitates this link between users.

The final idea of ​​this new economy is to make the most of the goods and change the model, from buying to sharing.
