Overcoming Business Obstacles

Posted on May 1, 2013 by - Also by this author

CHANGES & CHALLENGES: There’s a bigger dimension the Uber controversy, one that afflicts far more segments of the economy than just the mobile app sector: Slow government, too many gatekeepers. As this Forbes contributor explains, the free U.S. economy needs to sort out how technology gets applied to problems and who wants to use it. The movement to mobile apps will only gain momentum.

That’s Topic A at the LCT Leadership Summit: How the limousine industry should embrace, adapt and exploit new technologies to its advantage. The same goes for Obamacare and its effects on the U.S. health care system, another Topic A which will be explored at LCT Show East in Atlantic City, N.J.

What these challenges have in common is that the more entrepreneurs must face the hurdles of regulations, permissions, and requirements, the more innovation gets stymied or slowed down. Limousine operators need to collaborate and find solutions, as well as support associations who can advocate for more sensible, fairer regulations and less red tape. In some cases, DE-regulation is needed. In others, RE-regulation. The Summit and LCT Show East serve as the most insightful and accesible industry forums for such conversations.
