Platform businesses like Facebook, Uber and Airbnb are disrupting every industry, but what are they really and how do they do it?
In this session we will explore what platform businesses are, how they work, and what they mean for business and economics with co-founder of Style Counsel, Sophia Matveeva.
Sophia writes for Forbes and has an MBA from Chicago Booth, where she studied platform competition under Austan Goolsbee, President Obama's Economic advisor.
This session will explore fundamental principles and practical examples from Sophia’s experience working in, building and studying platform businesses.
Our member-only Be Better programme is designed to get people sharing their skills and knowledge, so that everyone in the community can be better (or even better!) when it comes to work and life.
These informal sessions include business masterclasses, self-improvement workshops and roundtable discussions.
