Innovation in the Sharing Economy
Wednesday, February 15, 2017 from 1:30 PM to 6:30 PM (CET)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The sharing economy is proving a major game-changer in a number of different markets, shaking traditional assumptions and disrupting well-established value chains, all based upon the notion of providing ‘access’ to goods and services rather than ownership. The hospitality market will not be the same after AirBnB. Transportation, mobility and automotive - Uber has ignited a series of major transformations which does not seem to stop. Freelancer and Upwork are transforming some of the very basic notions of labour. And many more markets will be disrupted in the next 5 years following similar dynamics.
The sharing or collaborative economy has already created 24 unicorns, which have received more than $26 billion in funding. What is going to be next?
Join us to discover how deep tech can enable new innovations in the sharing economy.
The event will bring together innovators, business angels, business developers, major industries, venture capitalists and technologists all looking forward to the next market to be disrupted thanks to a sharing economy approach.
