Join us this month as we explore the sharing economy in Singapore – how it works, its progress and challenges here. Our speakers include Eugene Tay of the Sharing Economy Association (Singapore), Fenni Wang and Swito Yuber of Rent Tycoons, and Moh Hon Meng of BlockPooling.
We’d like to thank BBX for sponsoring finger food for this session, and HOST at Clarke Quay for sponsoring the venue. BBX is a premier trade exchange which provides a platform for businesses to barter products and services and move unutilised capacity as well as decrease downtime.
Here’s a bit more information about each organisation, and what they will be speaking about –
1) Sharing Economy Association (Singapore)
Eugene, the Association President, will give an overview of the sharing economy in Singapore. The Sharing Economy Association (Singapore) is a new business association that aims to connect companies and organisations involved in the sharing economy in Singapore, develop a vibrant and viable industry, help our members address challenges and explore opportunities, and raise public awareness on the sharing economy.
2) Rent Tycoons
Fenni and Swito, the Co-Founders of Rent Tycoons, will discuss the 3Rs of Rentrepreneurship: Resiliency, Responsiveness and Relationships.

Rent Tycoons’ mission is to help people make money, save money and be green effortlessly via renting!
Hon Meng, the Founder of BlockPooling, will share about the social network for neighbours.
