The Technology Layer of the Sharing Economy at Twilio April 14, 2016

twilio event

The backbone of the sharing economy includes a technology layer that most of us aren’t even aware of. Communications, trust & safety checks, payment processing, and insurance don’t make for sexy headlines, and yet they they makes the new economy possible!

We’ll explore how the technology layer of the sharing and on-demand economy helps attract, retain, and engage customers, increase trust and therefore ROI for the marketplaces that use them. And of course, we’ll discuss what’s next as the collaborative economy continues to evolve.

This event is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs, product managers, and marketers to learn more about marketplace strategy and the the technology layer driving two-sided marketplaces.
