OURHUB is a spinoff from non-profit organisation SharingLab, who is exploring and experimenting around the sharing economy.
This led to the birth of OURHUB in 2015, where a small group of visionaries got together around the ambition of transforming public spaces, into vibrant and playful places for its citizens.
Sharing a passion for tech startups, city planning, design making and social gaming - the entrepreneurs are working tirelessly to create and strengthen the features of OURHUB.
The shared ambition is to make a solution that creates strong communities, one ping pong match at the time and redefining code as we play along.
It is a patented solution, trademark protected and ready to launch in 2017.
See who we are below and don’t hesitate to contact us, if you want OURHUB in your city. (Reach out to Peter, he’s the one who get’s things done in that matter).

VISION & DESIGN
Peter founded sharing.lab, a citizen-centric research arm within the sharing economy space, 2 years ago. As one of the first things, he started thinking of how the sharing economy could be more than just new ways of consuming. Could it be used to strengthen society? That led to OURHUB.
Peter has been working with disruptive innovations for the last 25 years as an inventor, independent business developer, political advisor, general manager for an avantgarde theatre and as a tech focused serial entrepreneur. He’s been around you can say.
Peter is a university dropout, but spends most of his awake time educating himself in any fields needed, besides a couple of stints at Stanford University and MIT/Sloan School of Business. He enjoys solving highly complex challenges, especially the ones that are believed to be un-solvable, crack them and turn them into solutions for the benefit of society.
He is an avid pétanque player - the first Copenhagen champion (just sayin’) - and loves conversations about ideas and new ways of doing things.
CAROLINE F. HANSEN
Caroline has worked the last 10 years at the crossing between urban studies and innovation, both as a researcher and a consultant. She has been particularly interested in exploring how digital technologies impact people’s everyday life and what kind of new opportunities and challenges they create for cities. While ideas around smart cities have received most of the attention in urban studies those last years, she believes it is high time to explore more citizen-centric paths. For her, OURHUB is a way to do so and to transform ideas into concrete and innovative solutions in order to make cities more pleasant places to live in.
Caroline has an MSc in Regional and Urban Planning Studies from the London School of Economics and she has an international outlook, having lived, studied and worked in several countries (France, Tunisia, Jordan, UK, Denmark).
Being French Caroline should be an avid petanque player - buut that seems to be subject of mixed opinions in the office.

Henrik started speaking in code when he was 8 years old. He filled his home with wires, programmed until 4 AM, and dreamed of Artificial Intelligence. In high school, he programmed Neural Networks. While in University in 1996, he developed Denmark’s first online bank analysis. Since then, his mantra has been to let advanced processes become available for everyone using web technology.
Henrik is a serial entrepreneur. He developed his first social platform in 1998, has built highly advanced web/mobile platforms, and has worked as a tech consultant ever since. He has always been a bit of an inventor and is passionate about creating prototypes and production ready soft- and hardware. In spring 2015, he finished a Stanford course in Machine Learning, with a final score of 100%. Since then, he has been creating the digital platform of OURHUB. Furthermore he has a BSc.EE from the Technical University of Denmark.
Henrik describes himself as mediocre in all OURHUB games, but we hope this will change during the testing - otherwise we appreciate his interest for special brews as we fight for the team on the fields.
