The Disrupting the Disruptors conference will explore an emerging business model for sustainable web based platform businesses. Platform co-operatives are an alternative to venture capital funded platforms because they are owned and governed by those who depend on them most—workers, users, or stakeholders.

Join us on Saturday, September 9 at the Toronto Reference Library’s Bram and Bluma Appel Salon learn about the potential of platform co-operatives. Exciting examples will be presented by entrepreneurs who are proving the concept a success. Co-operatively owned digital platforms can build a sustainable and profitable platform economy, and they can also remedy app driven precarious work. Deeply experienced entrepreneurs who have worked with the co-operative model will be there explain the resilience and competitive advantages of the model.

We have assembled an group of international experts and entrepreneurs who can answer these questions and provide a learning experience that will change how you think about sustainable business models.
