Event description
The CEO of Upwork, the website most freelancers check out first and that went public last year, will be at The Family on November 19th :)

About this Event

What are we talking about here? The largest freelancer marketplace in the world, which means some impressive numbers: 12M+ users in 180 countries, 3M+ jobs posted annually & a market cap of $1.7B.

Upwork is the story of a company trying to embrace the cultural change we’re all seeing in jobs: After being farmers, factory workers & office workers, people are shifting to become freelancers, taking advantage of a flexible working model. But Upwork is also the story of a merger of two competitors, a merger that happened six years ago between Elance & oDesk.

Stephane Kasriel, Upwork CEO, will share that story on stage, interviewed by The Family Director Erika Batista. Stephane is co-chair of the World Economic Forum Council on the Future of Education, Gender and Work & a tech expert on leading distributed teams. His own journey, the merger, the road to the IPO & how to scale freelancing will be just a few of the topics addressed here.

Our events are free & open to everyone. Come enjoy some quality knowledge with us, ask your questions & meet new people :)

See you there!
