The collaborative economy is a phenomenon that has accompanied us over the years; society has evolved thanks to the collaboration between the individuals that make it up. Through a deep qualitative analysis of grounded theory, the researchers analyzed twenty-four models of collaborative economy detailed in the literature, to know which ones are already experienced in Peru and which ones are not. The results showed that formal activities related to collaborative economy are already in operation, such as car rental, bicycle usage, film usage, varied objects rentals, online commerce, exchanges, room rental, crowdfunding, skills sharing, and rides. On the other hand, it was found that in Peru there are no formal activities related to car usage, shared trips, toy rental, book rental, used electronic, books, clothes, toys, clothes, DVD and games sales, service exchange, community support, or meal sharing; which requires business studies to determine whether or not there is a demand for such services that are not offered, so that they can be implemented in the future.
