Are you curious about what the ‘sharing economy’ is?
Maybe you’re hoping to get in there and participate? Maybe you’re already on the road! Join us for this free event as part of the Changemakers Festival.
This workshop is designed to appeal to all of you. It will explore a range of legal and business issues for startups in the sharing economy. It will provide both practical take-aways and open-ended creative brainstorming.
Hosted by Social Innovation Sydney and facilitated by UNSW staff who are involved in both research and practical support services related to the sharing economy, there will be three sessions.
- One will use business as a starting point, looking at startups in the sharing economy and the challenges of gathering both social and financial resources.
- One will use law as a starting point, looking at different legal structures, sources of legal advice, responses to harm and the blurry line between gift and contract.
- The final session will blend these perspectives, working through specific or experiences of the participants.
So bring along those experiences and your thoughts and join us! You will get the most out of this workshop if you’re ready to workshop an idea with the group.
But if you’d just like to sit up the back in listen-and-learn mode that’s fine too. Light refreshments will be provided. Numbers are limited to allow for interaction so book now!
