Girlmade founder to present on Uber, Airbnb and ‘The Sharing Economy’
December 7, 2015
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.
