This July, SELC is kicking off our Members Happy Hour Series, where we feature one of SELC's members and one of SELC's clients and how they are both working to build more sharing, just, and resilient economies.
As a member of SELC, we invite all of our Sustainers and Community Members to come, relax, and meet our special guests, Lisa Gansky (The Mesh) and Joshua Danielson (Loconomics) sharing stories of resilient economies in practice. Please come and join us at Lost and Found in Oakland, near the 19th St. BART station, for drinks, casual conversations, and connecting with the trailblazers of the new economy. Please RSVP below!
About SELC's Special Guests
Lisa Gansky is an entrepreneur, investor, speaker and author of the bestselling book, The Mesh: Why the Future of Business is Sharing and the chief instigator of Mesh Labs, a global directory for the sharing economy. She works in the design of new products, policies, services, partnerships and models in which ‘access’ to goods, services and talent triumphs over the ownership of them. Lisa invests, advises, speaks and writes on the topics of innovation, collaboration and the Share Economy including: cities as platforms, power of peers, shareable business models, building trust in a shared world, the hidden value in waste, and the rise of entrepreneurship.
Joshua Danielson is the founder of Loconomics, an online marketplace and business-management software for entrepreneurs such as bodyworkers and psychotherapists. Recently described in an SFGate article as "TaskRabbit if the rabbits owned the company," by SELC's Executive Director Janelle Orsi. She continued, "It's not a platform for the rich to get richer, it's a platform for reversing that." SELC is very excited to be working with Loconomics and building tech based companies that are owned and controlled by the people who generate the value that keeps the business thriving.
You can find SELC on the back patio of Lost and Found. Look for the colorful African cloths.
