The Sharing Economy has exploded into life over the past 12 months. Technological developments are allowing people to share more goods, skills and services than ever before, and new business models are springing up all around the world.
In the UK alone, an estimated 25% of people already take part in this type of sharing online, and current global revenues of around £9bn could reach £230bn per year by 2025.
Spurred on by this growth, the team at Love Home Swap has created a map of the most exciting Sharing Economy companies around the world - from carpooling in Cairo to skill-sharing in Sydney - and the business leaders behind them.
The map covers four key sectors and includes activities as diverse as dog sharing and tool swapping, as well as accommodation, transport and skills.
We'd love to hear your thoughts on the companies that we've included - and any that you think we've missed out on!
Check out the interactive map.
