The Future of Collaborative Consumption
Monday, January 27, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
Remember when the only thing neighbors used to loan each other was a cup of sugar? For over a decade now innovative companies have developed systems of organized sharing, trading, renting, and swapping that gives individuals the perks of ownership with fewer personal responsibilities and costs to shoulder.
While collaborative consumption pioneers like Netflix and ZipCar have become staples in our daily lives, a whole slew of fresh new entrepreneurs are taking the idea to new heights. Join us on Monday, January 27th as we chat with some of the industry's most dynamic companies to find out what's next in the world of collaborative consumption.
Our friends from KIND will be onsite sampling their healthy and tasty snacks.
