ODE and SE start-ups are very different. SE marketplaces are based on freedom of markets, do not set the prices themselves and do not choose the provider you will contract with.
Their goal is to provide all the tools for trust and transactions. ODE start-ups, on the contrary, need to control their suppliers and dispatch them to their clients, in order to keep their word on the service they provide.
Given these differences and in the case of platforms of millions of users, we think that SE startups have massive advantages allowing them to bring the same benefits of quality and transparency of price without the structural disadvantages that threaten ODE start-ups.
ODE startups are subject to a fundamental risk on their operating costs. Legal Courts don’t hesitate to rule their contractors as employees as they control all the experience and business done on the platform, setting the price of the suppliers and assigning them to a client Such legal risks do not apply to SE startups since they do not control price and behaviours of users. SE startups do not experience a legal risk but experience a legal issue Examples of companies involved in the sharing economy include:
