My thesis explores opportunities for creating an alternative marketplace and currency to match the supply and demand of resources needed by early stage entrepreneurs in a more democratic way.
Central to my research lies the question: how might we design a value-driven marketplace and trust-based currency that is relevant to early-stage entrepreneurs in South Africa? At the intersection of the collaboration economy, film and technology, my aim is to design a marketplace that enables early stage entrepreneurs to adopt collaboration- enabled practices and a reputation based currency to mobilise the resources needed to build their startups.TutorsBitten Stetter/Dr. Francis Müller /Dr. Gerhard BuurmannFileDownload file
