Swap Don't Shop Panel, April 24

Apr 24 Panel “Swap, Don’t Shop: 
Making Green in the Sharing Economy, Plus Reception

From Stephen Colbert’s Toasterster (http://bit.ly/HclZh2) to Peer-to-Peer banking, collaborative consumption is changing the way we think about ownership and opportunity. Join us in NYC as a new generation of entrepreneurs reveals how they capitalize on helping consumers share, sell, barter and swap their way to better lives in a world where access trumps ownership.

    Excellent panel discussion! Various start-ups shared their business models that enable people to swap and share goods rather than buy them.
