As a hub of technological development and innovation, San Francisco is oftentimes the breeding ground for entirely new industries and economies. As these new economies grow, the city inevitably becomes involved in issues that other local governments have never before had to experience. Just last week, there was a hearing at City Hall to discuss a proposal to charge residents who rent rooms out on Airbnb the same taxes that commercial hotels have to pay.
This week, representatives from the city as well as the founders from select companies in the space will discuss the social, economic, and environmental impact of the sharing economy. Jamie Wong, the CEO of Vayable will be on the panel along with TaskRabbit, Getaround, Airbnb, and Jay Nath (chief innovation officer of the City of San Francisco).
We invite you to join us on Tuesday, April 3 at 6 PM for this evening forum.
654 Mission Street,
San Francisco, CA 94105-4015
Obviously we’re huge fans of sharing, and we are honored to be part of decisions that can change the future of San Francisco and also the world! We hope to see you all there! In the meantime, feel free to write us with your thoughts.
