Collaborative consumption has taken over New York City by storm, empowering micro-entrepreneurs to make and save money from their assets. Over the past year, companies such as Uber, Sidecar, and Airbnb have begun to navigate the legal structures that currently exist whilst experiencing rapid adoption of their platforms.
With the explosive growth of the sharing economy in New York and all the recent press on collaborative consumption organizations battling with outdated government laws, we decided to bring together the pioneers of the collaborative consumption economy in New York to talk about their growth and how they have dealt with the City and State government. Whether it’s navigating old laws, working to change regulations, or growing a passionate user base, there are many things companies in the collaborative consumption space can learn from each other.
