DATA’S ROLE IN PLATFORMS: A CHAT WITH FACTUAL & APPLICO
A platform enables the exchange of value between two sets of users, usually producers of value and consumers of value. Uber, Airbnb, Snapchat, Facebook, Tinder, App Store, and Lending Club are all platforms.
What do Google, Snapchat, Tinder, Amazon, and Uber have in common, besides soaring market share? They’re platforms – a new business model that has quietly become the only game in town, creating vast fortunes for its founders while dominating everyone’s daily life. A platform, by definition, creates value by facilitating an exchange between two or more interdependent groups. So, rather that making things, they simply connect people.
What is the role of data in these platforms? This quarterly Meetup by Applico will explore the topic with perspectives from executives, product & engineering and data scientists.
The event will kickoff with a fireside chat between Factual Founder and CEO Gil Elbaz and Applico Founder and CEO Alex Moazed.
A panel moderated by Applico Principal Nathaniel Malka will the fireside chat. Panelists TBD.
Pizza and beer provided!
