Meet the leaders of Axial, Fivver, PRIV and Handy - four exciting gig/shared economy start-ups you should get to know. MIT Sloan Fellow Michael Schrage will facilitate a panel discussion on the hows and whys of making these business models succeed for customers, participants and investors alike.
What skills and talents win? What management cliches are doomed to obsolete anachronisms? What ways to measure, match and monetize human capital in these marketplaces work best? Is there a tad too much froth?
In market sectors from beauty and wellness to talent to enterprise support, the opportunities for ingenuity and impact appear rife. This panel examines how real they are.
