The digital sharing economy creates new markets, produces millions of job opportunities, and revives “sharing” – one of civilization’s oldest forms of economic and social empowerment – as a tech business model.
Dozens of digital sharing ventures are already driving economic and social change in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, and there is potential for these models to address some of the world’s thorniest development challenges.
Digital sharing is already massive, and here to stay. Make no mistake, this is not a trend. We estimate global sharing economy revenues to be $25 -$30 billion per year, and expect the global sharing economy to grow 25-30% a year for the foreseeable future.
