Empty, unused desks, retail space, warehouses, public buildings, homes, bedrooms, classrooms, kitchens, event halls and backyards can be used for all different purposes - from community building to creating new companies, educating and giving people a hand up, a chance at their new business via a pop-up shop or restaurant night - individuals and groups can now access and have the ability to use what was previously owned, private, locked and/or cost-prohibitive.

This speaker panel will include sharing economy leaders in the areas of retail, civic, enterprise, live, and workspace, generating a lively discussion on how opening these spaces is changing the way we do business and relate to one another.
