Summary:
The talk will cover the strengths and weaknesses of the business models of Costco, Amazon, Uber, Ebay, Google, etc. We will also discuss the business model of real-estate transactions and identify the bottle necks which have prevented this 
industry from modernizing, and touch upon the business models of Zillow, Redfin and other key players. In an age when everyone appears to be data-driven and infatuated with big data, the talk will also discuss when data alone, no matter how big, is not sufficient to help you craft a successful new business model.
