TrustCloud gives you the confidence to make smart decisions in the Sharing Economy.


It’s a movement as dramatic as the Industrial Revolution: the consumer experience is rapidly evolving, with sharing becoming a more fulfilling experience than owning. Strangers can now leverage technology and access an exploding number of sites to share cars, rooms, items and tasks.


The Sharing Economy, also called Collaborative Consumption, connects people to their communities, saves money, and is environmentally-conscious. Learn more about Collaborative Consumption here.


TrustCloud provides a tool to build and maintain portable Trust between strangers and sharing sites, simplifying and improving the Sharing Economy experience and shaping its evolution.


“The notion of connecting trustworthy strangers is an untapped market. Social, mobile and location technologies are coming together to make efficiency and trust. Technology creates the social glue for trust to form between strangers.”
Rachel Botsman, Wired 2011
