2015 has been a year ripe with change and watershed transformation, but as we move into 2016 many new trends lurk on the horizon. In a new report, Billee Howard talks about the top 10 emerging trends to look out for in the year ahead that will impact entrepreneurialism, innovation and the consumer landscape overall. One of those trends that parallels those happening in education is the idea of a sharing economy.
The sharing economy will continue to explode but will move away from the notion of “altruism” to profiting for the many and not the few. We will see a continued push towards sharing business ecosystems that embrace the we instead of the me and provide value and benefit to the communities they operate in as a whole.
This idea of businesses benefiting themselves, the consumers they serve, and local people seeking freelance employment, will become more evident and an obvious sign of the permanence of our new Uber X economy.
