US-ATMC (EE402A) Special Seminar

Topic: 
Innovation Salon: The On-Demand Economy: Unlocking Value for Consumers and Companies
Abstract / Description: 

The on-demand economy, exemplified by companies like Lyft, Airbnb, TaskRabbit and more, helps consumers (providers) find value in assets they already have – cars, homes, skills, insights. Data from TaskRabbit indicates an opportunity for Taskers to earn up to $150K per year by joining the service as a provider. Similarly, for consumers of on-demand services, the on-demand economy helps lower frictions or barriers to services, be it transportation or lodging or assembly of furniture.

For businesses, on-demand economies provide new opportunities to "upskill" people and also necessitate new ways of thinking about traditional assets, such as the car.

In this panel discussion, we will learn from those at the frontlines of this economy, on how the on-demand economy has impacted the US and how it can impact Japan.

 

Presented by Japan Society of Northern California and the US-Asia Technology Management Center

Date and Time: 
Friday, May 20, 2016 - 5:30pm to 9:00pm
Venue: 
DG717, 717 Market Street, San Francisco

Panel Discussion - What Asia Means for Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs

Our panel of three Stanford alumni provide diverse perspectives into the ways in which Asian economies will play a part in the future of Silicon Valley: as important markets, as sources of new businesses for the U.S., and as sources of leaders for the next generation of innovation. Will increasing ease of communications and data transfer lead to more internationally distributed startups? What are the leadership challenges for Asians and Asian Americans in the future of the Valley? How can Silicon Valley keep up, as Asia economies become more robust in generating globally focused startups?
