Online Marketplaces are the new, fast and most efficient way to shop for products and services.
They also have huge entrepreneurial potential !
They can scale ultra fast, by being platforms which focus on removing friction between supply and demand, rather than having to bare huge capital investment costs such as payroll for servicers, inventory or hard assets.
However building and scaling an online marketplace is nothing but a simple task.
Some people say it is like building two startups at once...
Finding a business-worthy niche, creating a frictionless experience, building and balancing supply and demand or (even harder) expanding in various geographies are all huge challenges.
We will have 2 very experienced speakers for our meetup:
- Yiorgos Kleivokiotis, Head of Marketing of Blueground (raised more than $25m until today) and
- Stefanos Katsimpas, CEO & Co-founder of MyJobNow and ex associate of Venture Friends,
Yiorgos and Stefanos will join us on Wednesday, April 17 at 18.30 at our usual meeting place (Alexandrou Pantou 19-23, Kallithea https://goo.gl/maps/erLapqKBkvx) and share with you all their experiences, tricks and trips.
