Last week we held our collaborative consumption panel event in Silicon Valley. For those who are interested in hearing about what's going on in the #collcons space, you can view the video in its entirety below. We had a great group of panelists and a wonderful moderator.
The panel discussed quite a bit about trust and security issues for collaborative sharing companies. Given the recent publicity with Airbnb, it's no surprise that when one company receives negative publicity, the others will also feel the setbacks.
The collaborative consumption community is still very small, but one thing is for sure, it's growing, and growing fast. The speakers did a great job addressing issues that were top of mind for many and showed that companies in this space are here, and are here to stay.
Panelists: Victor Echevarria, Head of Marketing, TaskRabbit Mark Gilbreath, Co-founder & CEO, LiquidSpace Tim Hyer, Founder & CEO, Rentcycle Avery Lewis, Head of Product, Getaround
Moderator: Amit Garg, Senior Associate, Norwest Venture Partners
