You don’t need to own it to enjoy it.
Subscribing, renting, and sharing are more sustainable and effective ways to consume. We already subscribe to music and movies, to food- and laundry deliveries. We rent and share cars, bikes, apartments, the newest tech, clothing and even dog walkers. Thom Cummings and Björn Bakker from the technology subscription startup Grover discuss Björn's self-experiment of going all in on the subscribed life. How do we need to rethink our consumption and how can future businesses adapt, to challenge ownership and to put access and utility first?
Join us for this cosy fireside chat at Ahoy! Berlin one of the city’s finest co-working spaces. Listen in, ask away or just share your thoughts and experiences with subscribing to the things in your life.
If you run a subscription based business yourself we would love to hear your part of the story.

This session will be recorded, edited and made available online, as a contribution to the Disruptive Innovation Festival. The DIF is a three-week long online festival of ideas which is free for a global audience to access and contribute to from November 6 to 24.
Grover is a fresh alternative to owning things – making technology accessible to everyone, by enabling people to subscribe to tech products monthly instead of buying them.
