Highlights from Peers Inc: How People and Platforms are Inventing the Collaborative Economy and Reinventing Capitalism 

Robin Chase

Monday, March 11, 2019

12:30 pm – 1:45 pm

Mugar 200, The Fletcher School

RSVP Required
There is a new organizational structure that is transforming how we build businesses, how we work, and ultimately how we shape economies. We sometimes talk about the platform economy (which ignores the participation of others) or the gig economy (which ignores that this kind of work requires a platform to succeed). Peers Inc brings these together to talk about the synergies possible with this new collaboration. From a sustainability perspective, Chase see this structure as critical to addressing climate change at the speed and scale required, and is the reason she wrote the book.

Lunch will be served. Please bring your own beverage.
