SHQUARED is a Munich-based start-up founded in 2020 with the mission to provide a sustainable solution for the lack of commercial space in urban surroundings. With its digital platform, SHQUARED connects people offering and people in need of commercial space, enabling them to create unique space collaborations – Shared Squares. This way, urban and commercial space can be used more efficiently leading the way for more diverse and creative city design.
We strongly believe that our economy provides opportunities to create a feeling of togetherness. Steward-ownership enables us to take the meaning and value of ownership to the next level and use it to create new economic paths.
Using steward-ownership to break entrenched structures
SHQUARED has been a steward-owned company from the very start. Re-thinking the concept of ownership and providing creative solutions to seemingly entrenched structures is part of SHQUARED’s business philosophy. Purpose helped the team to find an aligned ownership structure and the Purpose Foundations holds one percent of the voting rights to secure the company’s independence and mission in the future in the long-term.
