"We used to live in a world where there are people, private citizens, a world where there are businesses, and now we’re living in a world where people can become businesses in 60 seconds,”

Brian Chesky, CEO, AirBNB

Today, if you have that killer idea, all you need is a credit card and a cellphone to start your business.

With the collaborative economy, you no longer need the same depth in resources once required to get your business off the ground. The collaborative economy is the connector and the solution to many of the challenges startups face.

This session will help you

  • Learn about the latest developments and thinking in the collaborative economy
  • Understand how startups can setup a cooperative business model that impacts society
  • Leverage cost-effective resources and management practices to create branding, MVP, distribute and market what they have built

 Then Stay for our Beer Pong Social!
