When it comes to online work platforms, we have been seeing waves of development and investment. One of the first major waves may have crested recently with the IPO of freelancer.com and the merger of the two global online freelance platform giants, Elance and oDesk. But in the past few years, we have seen new waves taking shape as a range of different kinds of start-ups--with different perspectives on and models for addressing the market(s)--have appeared in the space. And we all know that the biggest wins in new industries often does not come from the "first-movers" but often from the fast (and not-so-fast) followers.
So this MeetUp will focus on some of those companies so that we can hear what they are about, how they are different, what it's like to be "catching a wave" at this stage of evolution in the space, and what the future of the space looks like to an early-stage entrepreneur.
We have a great panel lined-up, founders of five young online work platform companies (each with a unique perspective and model):
• Mattias Guilotte of Coworks
• Pramod Raheja of MyStaffNow
• Brendon/Branson Bollinger of PRSONA
• Jason Chicola of REV
• Yong Kim of Wonolo
I am looking forward to a very interesting talk with these representatives of new companies pushing further online work platform innovation.
