SVA Members Only – Learn How Lyft is Scaling a 2-Sided Market

June 7, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

SVA lobby

Our friends from Lyft are in town to announce a new partnership with Startup Virginia members (!!!). In addition to announcing this partnership we thought it would be a great opportunity to learn about their business and how they’ve continued to scale. Wilson Turner, Local Analytics Manager for Lyft in the Mid-Atlantic, will lead a session on the ways in which the company is focused on scaling its 2-sided marketplace. The discussion will be focused on acquisition and engagement within groups on both sides of the marketplace (drivers / passengers), as well as the decision making framework utilized by Lyft operators to determine when and how to invest in growth. Wilson will be joined by Cabell Rosanelli, Market Manager for Lyft in Richmond.

Kombucha (Sonia’s favorite) and cookies will be served for those of you who join.
