SXSW Interview: Jessica Scorpio of Getaround.com

In case you missed South by Southwest last week, we're working to bring the best sustainability thinking from the conference to you this week via some thought-leader video interviews conducted on the ground in Austin. View them all here. In keeping with our quest to find "Access Economy" startups at SXSW, I was thrilled to have a few minutes to sit down with Jessica Scorpio, the founder of Getaround.com, a company which makes it possible for car owners to make extra money renting out their cars to their neighbors. http://youtu.be/Bwd3YkHjvM8
