EBF Economic Event | Theme

EBF Economic Event 20th of November

The theme of this year’s event will be the sharing economy. More and more young start-up companies think of inventive ways to share products with other users. The sharing economy is a major ongoing trend and it is successful. Companies like AirBnB, Swapfiets and Uber grow rapidly and gain market share. How does this economy work and how does it differ from the traditional economy? Will the sharing economy be the future? Is it fair competition for traditional companies?

During this event all your questions about the sharing economy, its business models and labor contracts will be answered. Also, we will pay attention to competition policies; the rules and laws set by the European Union/Dutch government and discuss the fairness of competition. After two guest speakers workshops will be available for students held by companies active in the sharing economy to gain you a practical insight.

Afterwards there is time to network with the companies providing the workshops over a drink.

“The share economy blows up the industrial model of companies owning and people consuming.” —Forbes, Jan
