My name is Niels Kramer.
I started project handshake because I needed an electrical sickle to cut the weeds in my garden but didn't have the money to buy one... I started thinking about asking around but didn't feel comfortable to borrow something. This got me thinking and I decided that was of course stupid and on community scale a huge waste of recourses. Why don't we help each other more by lending and sharing?
I started talking with people about it and with the help of Topaz (www.topaz.org.il) a social startup incubator I started developing the idea. Soon a group of volunteering developers started working on the project and we have just finished all the wireframes and detailed design plan. Our graphic designer and copywriter are working on the content.
We believe this project can bring meaningful change in the way people consume goods and interact with each other. It will make better use of resources, reduce consumerism, and as such be environmentally friendly. The project will enhance mutual trust, social values, respect, and help return the sense that together we can get more out of life!
