The Marketplace Conference
As we’re getting ready for the upcoming Marketplace Conference on 1-2 December, we are super excited to share some of the speakers who we will have on stage.
Sarah Tavel (Benchmark) will give a keynote presentation covering the hierarchy of marketplaces. Rytis Vitkauskas (Lightspeed) will have a fire-side chat with the CEO of Vinted, Thomas Plantenga. And Lenny Rachitsky (ex. Airbnb) will explain how to kick start a marketplace business.
