Molly Turner

Director of Public Policy, Airbnb


The economic impacts of new online collaborative consumption marketplaces are uncharted. Sharing of idle assets redirects consumer spending on goods and services from traditional providers to individual microentrepreneurs and small businesses in local communities.

This shift from ownership to access, from production to service entails a new perception of value - in Airbnb's case, the ability to monetize underutilized space. This new sharing economy has the power to re-allocate the flows of economic benefit to a broader, more diverse population.

As participation in collaborative marketplaces grows, what will the impacts be within urban economies? What is the potential of collaborative consumption as an economic development tool, and how may such effects vary in different geographic areas and across industries?

This panel discussion will explore the prospective economic impacts of collaborative consumption in local communities with viewpoints from entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and economic development experts.  

Format:  Reception with light food and drink followed by moderated panel discussion and Q&A. 

Collaborative Chats is an ongoing speaker series for the collaborative consumption movement. Events occur monthly in San Francisco.

The series is a project of Legit in partnership with Shareable
