The central announcement at Milestone's annual conference MIPS is Marketplace, which Milestone compared to Uber and Match.com for its ability to bring buyers and sellers together.

In this note, we examine the Milestone Marketplace, what strengths it has in building one and challenges it faces in accomplishing this.
