You Can Always Get What You Want: oDesk, Uber & Gidsy Discuss On-Demand Access to Services

The Internet has driven disruptions in just about every industry, but it has also disrupted something more fundamental — how and when we access what we want. The first era of online marketplaces brought fast, direct access to all types of consumer goods, including books, appliances, and electronics. But a new generation of online platforms has reimagined this model, providing on-demand, frictionless access to services such as software development, accounting, transportation, lodging, graphic design, tours, and much more. Join General Assembly and moderator Oliver Jung of Airbnb for this interactive discussion with executives from oDesk, Uber & Gidsy. Learn how these companies have stripped away the friction of intermediaries to disrupt the traditional models of staffing, transportation, lodging, and vacation planning. Explore how your business can become more lean, on-demand, and innovative than ever before. A light lunch will be provided.
