BOOKOMI PRESENTS : Brad Stone 'The Upstarts'
Tue 7 March 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
Bookomi & The Collective are hosting the New York Times Bestselling author of 'The Upstarts' Brad Stone.
His latest book is the definitive story of two new titans of business and a dawning age of tenacity, conflict and wealth - "How Uber, Airbnb, and the Killer Companies of the New Silicon Valley Are Changing the World."
Ten years ago, the idea of getting into a stranger's car, or a walking into a stranger's home, would have seemed bizarre and dangerous, but today it's as common as ordering a book online. Uber and Airbnb have ushered in a new era: redefining neighborhoods, challenging the way governments regulate business, and changing the way we travel.
In the spirit of iconic Silicon Valley renegades like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, another generation of entrepreneurs is using technology to upend convention and disrupt entire industries. These are the upstarts, idiosyncratic founders with limitless drive and an abundance of self-confidence. Led by such visionaries as Travis Kalanick of Uber and Brian Chesky of Airbnb, they are rewriting the rules of business and often sidestepping serious ethical and legal obstacles in the process.
Join us in The Den at The Collective HQ to hear direct from the author how it all happened and what it took these companies to change the world.
