Disrupting the Digital Economy: The rise of platform co-operatives

May 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

What does the rise of co-operatively owned digital platforms mean for entrepreneurs?

Only a small percentage of startups will succeed. What happens to the majority that fail?

What if many of those were great ideas that would have flourished with a different business model? What other possibilities are there to make a living doing the work you choose?

Platform co-operativism challenges the ‘winner takes all’ culture exemplified by Silicon Valley.

Come and talk with Trebor Scholz, a founder of the platform co-operativism movement, and learn about the benefits of this model, how it is being taken up around the world, and how you can start your own platform co-op.

About the Speaker

Trebor Scholz is Associate Professor for Culture & Media from The New School in New York. His work analyses the challenges posed by digital labour and introduces the concept of platform cooperativism as a way of cloning the technological heart of online platforms and reinventing it into a cooperative model, one that puts workers, owners, communities, and cities in charge of the platforms they use to live, work and play.
