Education, networking and information sharing platform for startups to learn risk
management, trust & safety and legal strategy necessary to successfully launch and grow.
We began as a working group of founders and executives from a diverse group of marketplace startups who came together to explore best practices and learn from one another how to better identify and mitigate the risks associated with marketplaces. This working group grew over time to include the entire marketplace startup ecosystem, including investors, founders, executives, lawyers, operators and the vendors we rely on.
In 2015, this working group evolved into the first, and still the only, conference focused on risk management, trust & safety and legal strategy for the marketplace startup industry - the Marketplace Risk Management Conference. Since then, we have gone global with the Sharing Economy Global Summit and the virtual Masters Program.
Whether you’re a marketplace investor, founder, executive, lawyer or operator, or one of the vendors that serves them, we invite you to join us to learn, network and share information to grow the industry, together.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Jeana Takahashi, Director of Trust & Safety Operations, DonorsChoose.org
I wanted to thank you for organizing such an informative, interesting, professional and fun conference! This was my first time attending the Marketplace Risk Conference, and I've come away with a notebook full of quotes and advice from speakers, and ideas about how to implement some of the concepts and strategies I learned from the sessions today. As a small(er) organization thinking about marketplace risk and fraud, it was tremendously valuable to hear from experts across the industry. It's clear that you and the team put an incredible amount of time and care into making this happen; thank you for all your hard work!
Nathan Garnett, General Counsel, OfferUp
The conference gets between and better every year - the quality of the content is always great, but the opportunity to share perspectives and experience with other marketplaces is the best part of the conference and why I find it so valuable. The only thing I might improve is the opportunity to get some written materials for the presentations (either a deck or an outline). I can’t attend every session and it’s not always easy to take notes.
