Inspiration

To guide you through your journey on the app as good as possible,  we have prepared a list of examples to give you inspiration and show you the possibilities. A bit of creativity often opens a lot of doors. The most important message we want to give you is that you don’t need much to make a difference. If none of the examples is applicable to your situation, don’t worry, if you feel your space is unique and be of value to someone, give it a shot and place it on the app. If you don’t have a space to list on the app, then you are probably the perfect person to book some extra space.
