The third edition of the OuiShare Awards was a great success. With almost 150 applications from 31 countries, it showed once more how Collaborative Economy is a growing and global phenomenon.
The 2015 OuiShare Awards aim to put exceptional collaborative economy initiatives from across the globe in the spotlight and provide them with support to develop further. Since the awards were be given at OuiShare Fest, a 3-day collaborative economy festival in Paris from May 20-22, all nominees were invited to the Fest to present their projects.
The first OuiShare Awards were launched with the aim to create awareness for the values of the OuiShare community and its partners by honoring projects that put these into practice in an exemplary way. In 2014, the OuiShare Awards rewarded emerging initiatives from the Collaborative Economy.
The third edition of the OuiShare Awards in 2015 focused on change-making initiatives ! After a nomination phase for startups and projects for an award in one of the award categories, a number of nominees were selected in a collaborative and crowdsourced voting process. The winners of the OuiShare Awards were announced during the OuiShare Fest in May 2015.
