Girlmade founder to present on Uber, Airbnb and ‘The Sharing Economy’

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Tahoe Silicon Mountain next week will welcome Ashley Jennings to present: “The Sharing Economy: Uber, Airbnb and How Sharing Resources Spreads the Wealth.”

The sharing economy — a $15 billion industry, which includes Uber and Airbnb, is continuing to experience explosive growth.

In this presentation, Jennings will explore and answer two questions: “Who wins in the sharing economy?” and “Can the sharing economy be used to spread the wealth?”

Jennings is a graduate of Columbia University and spent time in the social work field before becoming a startup founder.

She is the founder and past CEO of Girlmade, the first startup accelerator program in Nevada to focus on female-led startups.

She recently sold her first company, and is working on disrupting the music industry with her latest venture, Parlor Shows.

Tahoe Silicon Mountain’s meeting will be on Monday, Dec. 14, from 6-8 p.m. at Pizza on the Hill in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee.
