The TrueSharing Café opened its doors for the first time in November 2016, in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg district. It is the brainchild of Mamadou Niang, who developed the idea over the course of his Masters degree in finance and his 17 years’ experience running businesses. He has been working to implement and spread the concept ever since, writing a book on the subject and gathering a team of like-minded supporters - us. We have been working together for several months to bring the TrueSharing Café into being, proving the viability of the model as well as its numerous advantages for the community, and we’re just getting started.
We’re motivated by our desire to see many other businesses engaging in sharing, joining us on the path to a fair and sustainable future.
The TrueSharing Café also serves another purpose: it is a place for people to gather and hold creative events and activities - a space where experimentation and self actualization is allowed and encouraged. We don’t view our time running the TrueSharing Café as a simple job, but rather as an ongoing process of realizing our personal ideals and aspirations. We intend the Café to be characterized by our commitment to constant improvement, our courage to do things differently, and the flourish that results from this, showing that carefree consumption can be compatible with a healthy, sustainable way of business. So keep curious, stay tuned, and drop by any time!
