We want to advance and grow the industry. To do that, we have removed financial barriers to participating for entrepreneurs, unfunded and/or bootstrapped startups.
In order to attract innovators, entrepreneurs and startups that are bootstrapped and/or unfunded to the Sharing Economy Global Summit, we recognize that we must remove barriers to participation, including registration fees, and, in some cases, subsidize accommodations. At a minimum, we offer scholarships in the form of complimentary and discounted registration fees to those who qualify, including for startups in the sharing, gig, on-demand, peer-to-peer and collaborative economy, that would not otherwise attend the Sharing Economy Global Summit but for the scholarship program.
Qualification for the scholarship program is pretty simple - you simply need to demonstrate that you are: (1) a founder or employee of a bootstrapped and/or unfunded startup in the sharing, gig, on-demand, peer-to-peer and collaborative economy; or (2) you are an entrepreneur or innovator who is interested in the sharing economy (but not otherwise employed by a vendor or service provider in the sharing economy). In either case, you must show that you would not otherwise attend the Sharing Economy Global Summit but for the scholarship program.
This is even simpler than the qualifications. Simply send us an email describing your interest in the Sharing Economy Global Summit along with your qualifications (1 or 2 from above). Keep in mind, although we interpret the qualification requirements pretty loosely, we want to ensure that scholarships go to those who need it most and who would benefit from the Sharing Economy Global Summit the most. We will let you know pretty quickly thereafter. Once we do, simply register and attend the entire Sharing Economy Global Summit, and fill out the surveys for each session that you attend. Once the conference is over and we confirm your attendance and all surveys have been completed, you will be refunded the registration fees. It's as simple as that!
If anything is unclear or if you have any questions, feel free send us an email and we will be sure to get back to you!
