The Marketplace Snippet
Happy Monday!
Hot off the press, our 27th edition of The Marketplace Snippet curated by Paola and Mathias on behalf of the Speedinvest Marketplaces & Consumer team 🚀
The Marketplace Snippet is a monthly newsletter featuring the most interesting content on Marketplaces that caught our eyes.
In this edition…
Consumers are turning all their attention and $$ to mobile as we head into a “mobile-first” economy. The inside story of Facebook Marketplace from the one and only Deb Liu who led the team that pitched, built, launched, and scaled it from an idea to what it is today.
More on the innovation of Web2 and the idea that the 3% rule applies to this moment, whereby “you only have to slightly innovate an existing project by 3% to create a new one… Does it really apply to the shift to Web3?! Can “ownership” really be considered an innovation and who is benefiting from it?
More on this, including some thought-provoking discussions in the selection of articles below.
