        Gig Economy, also referred to as
“crowdsourcing”, the “sharing economy” and the “collaborative economy”, is where the individuals can market their skill sets (in both unskilled labour market and as skilled professionals) and sell their services online on different platforms or companies.


It is a prime example as a representative of the gig economy, especially considering the Uber Driver Partners’ app. Here, anyone, according to their own availability, route and convenience, may choose to start an earning by connecting their own personal vehicles.

Uber, is an American company that offers vehicles for hire, food delivery (Uber Eats), package delivery, couriers, freight transportation, and, through a partnership with Lime, electric bicycle and motorized scooter rental. The company is based in San Francisco and has operations in over 900 metropolitan areas worldwide. It is one of the largest providers in the gig economy.

 In these crunch times times with traffic at an all time high, and ever increasing, parking space is a luxury. Making this luxury, also an earning opportunity for space providers, this app brings the owners and the space seekers together. Anyone may post online, the availability of their parking space according to their own convenience and gain profits through a customer who needs the space.

Parking Panda is an online parking service that allows drivers to find and reserve parking in advance. In addition to providing drivers with mobile and web applications to find parking, they also help parking garage owners manage their inventory. Parking Panda launched and is headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland.

A great startup idea that provides an easy commute for children whose parents are busy and may not have the time to drop them to their schools, or coaching classes. They have diligently verified drivers, aged 23 and above, and with a proven track record of childcare experience. A good earning opportunity for drivers with complete comprehensive insurance cover, and also a trusted platform for parents.

HopSkipDrive is a vehicle for hire company that provides service to children. It has operations in eight metropolitan areas in the United States. It is aimed at children between the ages of 1 and 12 years who are legally restricted to use other vehicle for hire services. The service can be accessed by parents via a mobile app. The service employs mostly female drivers who have at least five years of experience in childcare.

 What the Uber Driver Partners’ app is in the space of transport, Airbnb is, in the area of housing property. Any type of housing property owners may post online their property’s availability for any probable rental agreement, lasting from about a few hours to even days or months. There is also a provision of referral bonus for providers and customers.

Airbnb is an American vacation rental online marketplace company based in San Francisco, California, United States. Airbnb maintains and hosts a marketplace, accessible to consumers on its website or via an app. Through the service, users can arrange lodging, primarily homestays, and tourism experiences or list their properties for rental. Airbnb does not own any of the listed properties; instead, it profits by receiving commission from each booking. The company was founded in 2008 by Brian Chesky, Nathan Blecharczyk and Joe Gebbia.

In the Gig Economy, the company is not the employer of the worker rather a connector between the contractors and the clients. The gig economy mostly operates on technology platforms that aim to connect workers looking for flexible work arrangements with the companies who need them in a centralized location, such as an app or website. However, Gig economy workers can also work for more traditional companies, which have changed how their staffing system operates.
