Brown Bag Lunch: The Economy of Now Forum
The Economy of Now forum works to assist businesses using this On-Demand business model (or any business model) that is reliant on the use of independent contractors to start and grow. We are an association focused on providing tools and resources to build and support these professional relationships and build a solid foundation for business growth. This forum is a community of on-demand companies that allows everyone from C-suite executives to the gig workers they work with to compile best practices, tools and resources to ensure this new way of working works for everyone involved.
At this first event, bring your own lunch and discuss the best practices when setting up independent contractor agreements as well as the competing and similar goals of the both the on demand companies and the independent contractors with whom they work. This will give companies and freelancers the opportunity to learn the pros and cons of working with and/or being an independent contractor and keys to develop agreements that satisfy the needs of both parties.
This event is for all platform entrepreneurs, gig workers, freelancers, investors, and those of us who just participate in the on-demand economy every day, who are interested in understanding what it takes to scale an on-demand marketplace platform in Chicago, straight from the source. Future events will include conversations around the evolution of on-demand technologies and their impact on work, play, and local commerce. If you have a specific topic you wish to discuss, simply contact us at http://www.smallbizflo.com/economy-of-now/.
