Featured Speakers

Laura Simpson

Co-Founder & CEO at Side Door
Laura Simpson is the CEO and co-founder (along with artist, Dan Mangan) of Side Door, a platform marketplace founded in 2017. Side Door’s mission to create shows anytime, anywhere - first with in-person shows and now online. The platform marketplace is built to connect artists with curators, venues, service providers and audiences to make booking, ticketing and payments easy, fair and transparent. Side Door provides robust tools and support, without any up-front costs to the artist.

Laura has spent much of her life serving the needs of artists and promoting live performance. Since 2007, she has worked with Music Nova Scotia, the Halifax Jazz Festival, the East Coast Music Awards, CAPACOA and the Halifax Pop Explosion. She has hosted house concerts (The Syrup Factory) since 2011. In 2015 she went to Los Angeles for four months to mentor with the former president of Warner Bros Records. Upon returning, she evolved The Syrup Factory into an artist services company which still thrives today and is managed by her partner, Sarah Jamer. She believes experiencing amazing live art in intimate community settings leads to stronger human connection, greater empathy and improved mental health.

Geoff Parker

Professor at Dartmouth College
I am a professor of engineering in the Thayer School at Dartmouth College where I also serve as Director of the Master of Engineering Management Program. In addition, I am a visiting scholar and research fellow at the MIT Sloan School’s Initiative for the Digital Economy where I lead platform industry research studies and co-chair the annual MIT Platform Strategy Summit. I work to understand the economics and strategy of network "platform" industries. I co-developed the theory of “two sided networks” which provides a mechanism to explain pricing in network markets. I work with numerous organizations to help them understand and craft their platform strategies. WW Norton published our book "Platform Revolution" in 2016 - this is our attempt to make the research accessible to a wide audience. It's now in 10 languages and we're gratified to hear that people are using it to help inform their platform strategies.
