Gig work has received increasing attention in recent years, particularly with the rise of digital platforms. From Uber drivers to Upwork’s “independent professionals”, there is no shortage of platforms enabling individuals and businesses to get services and talent on demand.
What does the proliferation of digital platforms, and gig work more broadly mean for entrepreneurship?
In this forum we will explore the landscape of gig work in the U.S., the various types of gig work people engage in, the relationship between gig work and entrepreneurship, and what this all means for policy and practice.
