*B. Friday, May 20, 2016 | 5:30 - 9:00 pm*
    *"Innovation Salon: The On-Demand Economy: Unlocking Value for
Consumers and Companies" *

The on-demand economy, exemplified by companies like Lyft, Airbnb,
TaskRabbit and more, helps consumers (providers) find value in assets they
already have – cars, homes, skills, insights. Data from TaskRabbit
indicates an opportunity for Taskers to earn up to $150K per year by
joining the service as a provider. Similarly, for consumers of on-demand
services, the on-demand economy helps lower frictions or barriers to
services, be it transportation or lodging or assembly of furniture.

For businesses, on-demand economies provide new opportunities to “upskill”
people and also necessitate new ways of thinking about traditional assets,
such as the car.

In this panel discussion, we will learn from those at the frontlines of
this economy, on how the on-demand economy has impacted the US and how it
can impact Japan.

Technology Management Center*
