OurCrowd launched a new webinar series called ‘Teach-In Tuesdays’. In this series, we’ll explore investing in early-stage Israeli companies, identify and explain influential tech trends, stay up-to-date with the crowdfunding industry, and examine actionable insights from our own experience running OurCrowd’s investment platform.

On Tuesday, we held a webinar as part of the OurCrowd Teach-In Tuesdays series on the rapidly developing bicycle sharing market.

Lately, we’ve been seeing more and more industries touched by the sharing economy, a business model built on the sharing of human and tangible resources. Today, within the startup culture in both Israel and beyond, there are plenty of sectors building on the concept, including social lending, accommodation, travel, and commute. Bike share, a billion dollar opportunity growing 25% yearly, is the fastest growing mode of public transport globally and currently one of the hottest sectors within the sharing economy industry.

Topics covered in the webinar:

  • Explore the multi-billion dollar sharing economy market made famous by success stories such as Uber, Airbnb, and Zipcar.
  • Hear from leading industry experts and prominent influencers in transportation technology and ridesharing companies.
  • Learn about OurCrowd’s newest investment opportunity, Social Bicycles, a turnkey bike share platform with a disruptive business model that has a national presence and is already generating significant annual revenue. A number of SoBi customers will also join us on the call to discuss the market, competition, and their decisions to work with SoBi.
