Network

The objective of SharingSA is to make home sharing more inclusive and representative. Making knowledge sharing accessible way via workshops and consulting, and share a own business network, tips, tricks and discounts from relevant providers in the industry with the larger community.

The goal is to create and inspire a movement of collaboration within the home-sharing economy, and be the authority that will negotiate and advocate for home sharers across South Africa.

Although our services are also available to the public on an ad-hoc basis, or feel free to drop in to any of our events, sign-up for our newsletter, or book us for workshops, but our members are given priority access to our knowledge and own pre-vetted network of suppliers and products. The larger our member base, the better deals we will be able to negotiate.

Our members will have priority access to:
