Crowdfunding: Trends in the Sharing Economy

 

The sharing economy is taking off - whether it's peer-to-peer rentals, skill sharing, crowdfunding, ridesharing or unused parking spots. Spawned by a confluence of the economic crisis, environmental concerns, and the social web coming of age, the sharing economy is quickly becoming the hottest trend in economic paradigms.

 

We in the Burning Man community are particularly interested in the dynamics and the future of the sharing economy, since it reflects our principles of gifting, communal effort, civic responsibility and decommodification.

 

Please join us for a panel discussion focused specifically on the future of crowdfunding, one of the fastest-developing areas in the sharing economy. We will explore the role it plays in creative community development, and how it's being applied to entrepreneurial endeavors in the form of spaces (local real estate) and support for small businesses (micro loans).

 

Panelists:

Daniel Miller, Fundrise

Harry Pottash, Kiva

Kate Drane, Indiegogo

 

Moderator:

Will Chase, Burning Man
