Lecture Summary:

Title: Communities 4.0
Abstract: Why do Facebook and WeWork invest tens to hundreds of millions of dollars in entrepreneurial communities? In 2018, Facebook launched the FCLP – Facebook Community Leadership Program, which includes direct support and grants of up to $ 1 million to managers of significant and influential Facebook groups. At the same time, WeWork Works launched the Creator Awards, which also included a category of community and social influence. Is it a contribution or an investment, a PR or a strategy? Who is working to inject hundreds of millions of dollars into the field, and will community entrepreneurs remain a hobby or become a profession?
