BSR and The Rockefeller Foundation will host an invitation-only lunch dialogue in San Francisco to explore how the sharing economy can be unleashed to create new business opportunities that support the needs of urban low-income and minority communities.

This convening will bring together a select group of companies creating the sharing economy and enablers such as information and communications technology and financial services providers.

The agenda will include a presentation from experts on the needs, opportunities, and challenges of enabling underserved urban communities to meet basic needs; followed by a facilitated dialogue where participants will explore solutions to address some of these needs through sharing economy models and opportunities for collaboration.
