Mutu is a sharing platform that could one day be doing more trades per day than TradeMe. That's the vision. We look at what you could share from your garage, as well as the opportunity for Kiwi businesses looking to rent spare inventory. Toby also shares where the idea came from and the importance of joy to the Mutu experience. Toby's got a huge amount of passion about making a positive change to how we access the goods we need without having to own so much stuff. Well worth a listen.
