Last week we had the opportunity to attend the two day conference Share: Catalyzing the Sharing economy in San Francisco. Over 500 people attended to engage in dialogue on the changing landscape of the sharing economy. Organized by Peers and SOCAP (Social Capital Markets), Share featured a rock star lineup of advisors and speakers including experts and scholars Lisa Gansky, Jeremiah Owyang, April Rinne, Neal Gorenflo, Arun Sundararajan and more. We also heard from representatives from top sharing platforms like Airbnb, Lyft, Ebay, Yerdle and the list goes on and on.
If you weren't able to attend in person you may have been one of the several hundred people that attended the live stream sessions. If you couldn't fit that in you could at least follow along some active conversation on Twitter:
Days later many are sharing their take-away from the conference. Shareable's Cat Johnson's article "Economic Justice Emerges as Central Theme of the SHARE Conference" is one of the many discussions inspired by attendees. Discourse on social change, economic inequality and the future of the workplace are a few topics disrupting the typical shareconomy buzz. It will be interesting to see conversations develop now that people are talking about this market ecosystem on a deeper level.
Did you attend the conference? If so what was your biggest take away?
