At Seats2meet we use a unique businessmodel where social and monetary capital are in balance with each other. That makes our business durable. We work this way by offering the oppurtunity for coworkers to 'pay' with their willingess to share knowledge. There is also still 'monetary capital' at the locations, as booking a meetingroom is simply paid for in euros.
Through the way of working and 'paying' by means of knowledge, in other words social capital, coworkers are intrinsically involved in Seats2meet. They are happy to share our story. And as a result, they are our ambassadors. That saves costs and effort for sales and marketing! Other benefits derived from social capital? Powered by Seats2meet locations work like a magnet. Visitors know that there is a chance to share knowledge and meet new people. Social capital ensures that your business is alive and flourishes
According to traditional economic principles, in our world there is always scarcity. And consumers always have to make choices, because of course 'you can only spend your money once'. When you take a good look around, you see 'abundance' instead of scarcity. In a one-kilometer traffic jam, on average 1.2 people per car are seated. So there are more empty seats in traffic jams than occupied ones. Another thing: offices, schools and universities are closed during the weekends. Thousands of square meters are empty. Sports fields are hardly used during the week, theatres are usually closed during the day. Hotel and office lobbies are empty almost all day. In short: an abundance of unused space. Knowledge is a special form of abundance. When I share my knowledge, I also retain it.
