The “sharing/collaborative economy” is an on-demand movement changing the way people buy, share, rent collaborate and swap. It is transforming what products/services we consume and how we consume them. Zipcar, AirBnB and Etsy are just a few examples.
This on-demand movement gives both individuals and firms the benefits of ownership, or growth/entry into new markets, with reduced costs but raises some concerns regarding fair labor practices, consumer risk and socio-economic equity.
Topics of Discussion
- Understand the collaborative economy.
- Discover how it will impact you/your clients.
- Learn how to assess services/products in this marketplace.
- Determine what regulations/protections to advocate for.
- Hear Nimber’s story (peer to peer delivery service).
