MSFT + LNKD = AMZN for Services

By June 16, 2016CMF Blog

LinkedIn CEO, Jeff Weiner, is quoted as saying, “For the last 13 years, we’ve been uniquely positioned to connect professionals to make them more productive and successful, and I’m looking forward to leading our team through the next chapter of our story.”

In our opinion, the next chapter is to create a business marketplace – think Amazon, but for services – where one could find and vet people on LinkedIn, and then contract and work online with one another using the Microsoft suite of business applications and LinkedIn’s network capabilities. The combined company would therefore also be in a position to take a slice of the gross margin between the buyer and the service provider.

Voila – the gig economy on steroids!
