Your Call: How would you define the sharing economy today?

Aug 3, 2014

On the August 4th edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the transformation of the sharable economy with the explosion of for-profit companies like Airbnb, Lyft, and Task Rabbit? Big investors and venture capitalists are backing these companies. Who’s investing? What is the original mission of the sharing economy and how has it changed? What should a sharing economy look like? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Neal Gorenflo, co-founder of Shareable, an award-winning news, action, and connection hub for the sharing transformation.
