When Robin Chase co-founded Zipcar, she not only started a business but established the foundation for one of the most important economic and social ideas of our time: the collaborative economy. With this important book, she broadens our thinking about the ways in which the economy is being transformed and shows how the Peers Inc model is changing the very nature of capitalism.

In Peers Inc, Robin Chase brings her provocative insights to show how focusing on excess capacity transforms the economics of what’s possible and delivers abundance to all; how the new collaboration between the Inc and the Peers enables companies to grow more quickly, learn faster and deliver smarter products and services; how the Peers Inc model can help legacy companies overcome their shortening life cycle by inviting innovation and evolution; and more.
