The New Sharing Economy, a New Start-Up Movement, and a Hot High-Tech Company1 March 2023
VOI's Simcha Gluck explores the full meaning of the "new sharing economy;" explains what "Access Trumps Ownership," means; and reviews some cool apps that support our new way of life.
Then, Ronen Gafni, a core member of Atzuma ("petition" in Hebrew) -- a new movement that has attracted 30,000 self-employed entrepreneurs across Israel in less than two weeks -- tells Simcha why the time is ripe for those who put the word "start-up" into "start-up nation" to receive equal rights and benefits as their counterparts who work for others.
Finally, Simcha interviews Jonathan Carras, the founder and CTO of Glide, a successful Jerusalem-based, live video messaging app. Listen to some fun facts about how the company won the Audience Choice award at TechCrunch; how they raised more than $28 million; and why they are popular among millions of North Americans, including among the deaf community.
