Sharesy is an Islington-based community venue hire platform supporting state primary and secondary schools, places of worship and community centres to hire out their spaces. Sharesy stands for community. For playgroups, scout troops, coffee mornings, yoga nights and everything in between.
It is a marketplace for people and businesses to find and book great local venues and spaces simply and securely, whilst putting their money back into their community.
Sharesy takes bookings from children’s events to performances, business meetings to choir practice, Taekwondo to language courses and much more.
With Sharesy, venues:
- Have their own listing pages for each of their spaces available to hire
- Reach thousands of local London bookers readily available through the Sharesy website
- Simply manage their calendar, set house rules and choose the types of events they want to host
- Receive bookings instantly, removing all the tedious back and forth
Sharesy has friendly business terms, with no fixed monthly fees, up front costs nor have any contract lock-ins, meaning the venue can exit at any time with no penalties. Sharesy simply takes a commission on bookings, meaning they only get paid if the venue does.
Working with Sharesy is incredibly affordable, with the venue paying as little as 5% commission on bookings taken. For that, they get access to Sharesy’s proprietary technology, marketing collateral and access to a customer support and sales team on hand to drive bookings for the venue.
Sharesy has taken around £2m in seed funding since its inception in 2020, enabling the impact business to rapidly scale towards its mission to make under-utilised spaces vibrant centres of the community and connection.
Having only started trading in earnest from February 2022, Sharesy has already generated over £1m in community bookings. Sharesy venues are now generating around £25k per year, with top performing venues earning well over £100k per year.
Sharesy’s ultimate vision is to support community venues across the UK, so watch out for their fast progress.
Support your local community by booking your local events with Sharesy and refer local venues in your area to benefit from their services.
