Disruption of yellow page directories happened already years ago. But the segment is a gift that keeps on giving. Our database covers hundreds of high potential companies in the space. The sector also is known for buzz words such as “on-demand”, “sharing economy” and “peer-to-peer” that are not very clearly defined or even accurate strictly speaking. For example, more lenders are barely peer-to-peer.
The below table shows is how we look at this space at Dealroom:

- On-demand = the merchant comes immediately to the consumer
- P2P = marketplace where the merchant is usually an “amateur” or “part-timer”
