Robin Chase - Excuse Me, May I Rent Your Car?Streaming Video - 2013
A decade ago, Robin Chase founded Zipcar in the U.S., currently the largest car-sharing company in the world. As she explains in this TEDTalk, now she's exploring the next level of car-sharing: Buzzcar, a French startup that lets people rent their own cars to others. The details are fascinating (how does insurance work, exactly?), and the larger vision (she calls it Peers, Inc.) points to a new definition of ownership and entrepreneurship.
