Sharing Economy: Beyond the Hype
We are excited to announce that we are collaborating with NYU’s Arun Sundararajan and Meetup’s Odile Beniflah to create the NY Sharing Economy Meetup so that sharing economy enthusiasts can connect with each other on the platform and allow for other groups and organizations to host and post sharing economy events.
For the kickoff, we had Arun and Meetup’s CEO Scott Heiferman give their thoughts and perspectives on the current state of the sharing economy. Arun gave an academic perspective of the economic and social impact and Scott demonstrated the positive change Meetup has had around the world. In New York alone, there are 10,000 meetup groups with 1 in 8 New Yorkers on Meetup.
