Green Future Solutions participated in the Green Entrepreneurship Symposium 2011 organised by AIESEC Singapore last Saturday. We spoke on “Collaborative Consumption and New Business Opportunities”, which is about the emerging idea of sharing empowered by technology and social networks, and how it changes consumption and the way businesses operate.
The term Collaborative Consumption was first described in the book What’s Mine Is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption by Rachel Botsman and Roo Rogers. Other resources with similar ideas on sharing include the book The Mesh: Why the Future of Business is Sharing by Lisa Gansky and the Shareable website.
