Urbano networking breakfasts give company directors, business owners, entrepreneurs, corporates, professionals and creatives across a range of sectors a chance to make connections, build associations, and learn from some of the UK's most informed and successful entrepreneurs, business people and cross-sector specialists.

** PLEASE NOTE: VENUE IS i2 Office ST PAUL'S (NOT Bishopsgate as on the invitation mailer).

Urbano speaker breakfasts are stripped down conferences, featuring great speakers, allowing attendees to discuss the issues featured in the guest presentation and plenty of opportunity to network with the speaker and the other attendees from all sizes and types of companies, from PLCs to SMEs.

This event will look at the fast-developing business trend of the 'sharing economy', defined as a socio-economic ecosystem built around the sharing of human and physical resources and includes shared creation, production, distribution, trade and consumption of goods and services by different people and organisations.

Often web-based, well-known examples include crowdfunding, car clubs, house/space rental sites such as AirBnB and JustPark, whose CEO Alex Stephany is also the author of the new book The Business Of Sharing and our event speaker.
