We shared with the community at Ecosystem about Collaborative Consumption, which refers to the idea of sharing that is empowered by technology and social networks. Sharing also covers renting, swapping, lending, trading, exchanging, bartering, and gifting.
Here’s our presentation slides on Die Die Must Share – Collaborative Consumption in Singapore:
Ecosystem has invited 3 speakers to share on Collaborative Consumption, which refers to the idea of sharing that is empowered by technology and social networks. Sharing also covers renting, swapping, lending, trading, exchanging, bartering, and gifting.
1) Collaborative Consumption in Singapore
by Eugene Tay, Co-founder of Ecosystem and Director of Green Future Solutions
Eugene will speak on the emerging trend of Collaborative Consumption, and share examples of companies involved in Collaborative Consumption in Singapore.
2) Rent Tycoons
by Swito Yuber, CEO of Rent Tycoons
Rent Tycoons is the leading online peer-to-peer rental marketplace in Singapore with over 11 product categories. The idea is to harness value out of idling capacity and empowering individuals to participate in this green effort. Collaborative consumption takes the center stage in this business and the corporate mission is to enable individuals to make money, save money and be green effortlessly!
by Jamie Wang, Co-founder and Director of iCarsClub
iCarsClub is an online marketplace that allows car owners to monetize their “free” car time through its car sharing scheme. Drivers who want to rent out their car when it’s free can do so, and those in need of a car nearby can find one. The platform creates a win-win situation by both lowering the costs of owning a car for owners, and rentees can also have the luxury of driving a car when the occasion arises without shouldering the burden of owning one.

LAUNCH OF ECOSYSTEM – COLLABORATIVE AND COWORKING SPACE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Singapore’s first eco-friendly coworking space helps the green community foster greater interaction and collaboration
Singapore, 19 March 2013 – Ecosystem is a new collaborative and coworking space for the environment, and is a joint initiative by Green Future Solutions and SHFT. Ecosystem emulates nature’s ecological system and nurtures the development of symbiotic relationships among individuals, businesses and organisations in the environmental sector. It is an eco-friendly space that allows the green community to foster greater interaction and collaboration.
Mr Eugene Tay, Co-Founder of Ecosystem and Director of Green Future Solutions, shares: “We are excited to start this new space for the green community to foster greater collaboration and partnership. The coworking office space is also useful for those who are just starting their business and need an affordable place to work from. More importantly, a coworking environment for startups would help them tap on the wider network of the community and increase business opportunities.” Read more

Ecosystem emulates the development of symbiotic relationships between organisations working in the environmental sector. It is a platform that allows organisations to have close and long-term interactions, generating larger network of people with common interests, more business opportunities and complementary expertise for each other.
The Ecosystem co-working office space near Bugis would be ready in March and we are looking for environmental startups, companies and organisations to join our community. We are offering an early bird rate for those who wish to sign up for a permanent table space and enjoy our services.
