Our founder, Paola, made the paper again this week, this time highlighting her skills as an entrepreneur.
South China Morning Press were primarily reporting on LinkedIn’s prediction that freelancers will represent 43 per cent of the global workforce by 2020, and the fact that since the 2008 recession, some Hong Kong companies have adopted contracting as a means to manage staff numbers more efficiently.
The article also covered the rise of the sharing economy in Hong Kong naming Uber, Airbnb, and PlateCulture as a few examples. They highlighted Paola as one who, with her entrepreneurial outlook, benefits from this new sharing economy. Two or three times a week she hosts guests registered with PlateCulture in her home where they enjoy home-prepared and cooked Indonesian food.
“It’s a good side income for me and also helps me improve my cooking skills,” says Paola. “Very little capital is required as well, plus hosting is fun!”
PlateCulture also enables Paola to easily follow her zero waste lifestyle, something she feels passionate about.
