Share Sharing Economy Challenge

Event Details

Sharing Economy Challenge

Please join us on July 11-12 at Impact HUB Berkeley to design a sharing economy that can close the wealth gap.

This challenge is open to anyone, including business leaders, community organizers, designers, technologists and students, interested in developing an inclusive and equitable sharing economy. Come learn more about the sharing economy, meet sharing economy leaders and investors, network with others interested in the sharing economy and design solutions. Bring your ideas for using technology and/or business models to create sharing economy solutions to close the wealth gap. More information on speakers, mentors, judges, prizes and partners can be found at: http://www.sharechallenge.com

Why the Sharing Economy?

Numerous studies have shown that the current economic system has created a tremendous wealth gap. In order to create a more sustainable economic system, we need to better align value generated with value received. The sharing economy is a movement toward better aligning value. Within this movement, there continues to be much discussion about the access and equality of sharing economy platforms and business models.

Our Challenge

During the course of the weekend, we encourage participants to think about how the sharing economy can be truly transformative in the way we align value. We challenge participants to conceptualize, test and rapid prototype sharing economy platforms, online or offline, that align value in a way that significantly addresses the wealth gap.

Our two-day challenge includes:

  • Innovation talks from leaders in the sharing economy 
  • Collaborative problems solving and team presentations 
  • Prizes and other giveaways
  • Food from local vendors

Organizer

Uptima Business Bootcamp

Uptima Business Bootcamp is an innovative member-owned business accelerator dedicated to providing entrepreneurs with greater access to hands-on education, resources and community to create thriving businesses. Our program encourages entrepreneurs to think holistically about their businesses and their impact on the community. Through a combination of evening and weekend workshops, one-on-one mentorship and online learning, we support entrepreneurs through processes for launching, going to market, funding and scaling their businesses. We are very different from other business accelerators – as a cooperative, our program participants are member-owners of the accelerator. This means they are part of a real community that shares in our profits and has a say in how our program is run.


We are now accepting applications for our 2014-15 cohort. Apply today at http://www.uptimabootcamp.com.
