Today's ever-expanding sharing economy provides consumers with convenient and cost-efficient access to critical resources without the financial, emotional, or social burdens of ownership. But, at its core, the sharing economy isn’t really about “sharing;” it’s about access, and D.C. is at the forefront of this new economy, both in terms of availability of and support for service providers. 

In 2014, D.C. was recognized for its low-barrier to entry for new and innovative services - like passing one of the first pro-ridesharing bills in the U.S. - and number of dollars raised by start-ups via crowd-funding. With these companies making user interfaces and customer service top priorities, D.C.'s booming access economy is providing residents and visitors alike with a wide variety of cost-effective services with superior user-experiences.

Join @DigitalDistrict on February 18 at Carriage House to learn how RideScout and others are excelling in D.C's vibrant access economy.
