Event Details

Are you interested in hearing what the future for Toronto’s sharing economy looks like? Join us for a conversation with the individuals behind some major proponents of this economy.

Toronto’s sharing economy has been increasingly growing into multiple industries for the past few years. Companies promoting ridesharing to flexible workspaces to retail trading spaces have embedded themselves into our lifestyles and have become second nature to us. Curious about how these companies overcame the challenges and even regulations to expand and gain a need to exist?

With these emerging technologies increasing their reach into our daily lives, we’re bringing in expert panelists to discuss what the continued evolution of this economy looks like. Hear from the experts and find out what new strategies or initiatives are being undertaken to adapt and grow in the sharing economy.

This event is fully catered with coffee and tea available.
