Turn your SKILLS into a successful business. How to create a "skill-sharing" e-marketplace
As e-marketplaces continue to be a popular method of running a business, how does one start an e-marketplace business?
For example, "Street Academy, Inc." is a web service that connects people who want to teach and people who want to learn by allowing anyone to easily arrange a class and also to sign-up for these classes.
This peer-to-peer education service was established in July 2012 and already has over 15,000 registered users, 700 classes/workshops and continues to grow.
During the seminar, I will explain how to grow a consumer-to-consumer (CtoC) based e-marketplace from a business perspective through my experience as the founder of Street Academy, Inc.
Mr. Takashi Fujimoto (Street Academy, CEO)
Mr. Takashi Fujimoto started his career at Universal Studios as a theme park ride engineer. After working as operation planner engineer for FedEx's international delivery operation, he obtained MBA from Stanford and joined private equity fund Carlyle Group's Japan team, investing in various mid-sized companies. In 2012, he left the financial career to start Street Academy, a leading CtoC skill-sharing platform with a mission to democratize education in Japan.
