Ecopoint and Olive Ventures announcecooperation to launch Ecopoint Community inSingapore
Hong Kong / Singapore, 1st July 2011Ecopoint Ltd. in Hong Kong and Olive Ventures Pte. Ltd. in Singapore signed a farreaching agreement to co-operate in building and engaging Singapore’senvironmental B2B community on the ground.The cooperation will involve the provision of a Singapore focused version of www.ecopoint.asiawith only Singapore related content which will feed back intothe Asian platform. The Ecopoint platform will by then include a social networkingfunctionality including working and project groups, public meeting and exclusive,by invitation only board rooms in order to allow likeminded eco professionals tomeet, discuss and exchange as well as creating business opportunities.Furthermore, there will be meet-ups, networking opportunities and other events tosupport local Singaporean environmental businesses.Jochen Kleef, Chairman of Ecopoint Limited, said:
Ecopoint is the first ecobusiness community in Asia that is trying to help and support environmentalcompanies through its online platform. Whilst the Internet is a great way tointeract through social media and meet new contacts on a wider scale, it does notreplace interaction between people. To us, building trust and relationships is thesame online as offline in order to become comfortable in dealing with each otherand this takes time.Our idea was always that we enable and accelerate finding likemindedenvironmental practitioners across Asia online but we also want to build acommunity which is clearly not there at the moment. Therefore, one of ourstrategic goals very early on was to partner with likeminded people and form thereal community in countries locally on the ground in addition to the onlinecommunity across Asia.When Olive Ventures signalled that a platform like ours was exactly what theywere looking for to do exactly what we had in mind for Ecopoint, it didn’t takelong to agree the way forward.We at Ecopoint are very excited about this next step and are very much looking
forward to engaging with the Singaporean environmental B2B community. ThatSingapore turns out to be the first country with a local Ecopoint businesscommunity underlines its leadership role in environmental innovation across Asia.”Low Yiqi, Managing Director of Olive Ventures commented: “We are honoured tobe in partnership with Ecopoint in this exciting collaboration, and hope this will bethe first of many more to come.Ecopoint Singapore will be more than a business directory, but a community for alllocal sustainable product and service providers to promote their businesses andinteract with their customers.Beyond that, there are plans in the pipeline to develop platforms for EcopointSingapore members to share their thought leadership, solidify their offlinerelationships, and synergistically move Singapore towards a sustainable future.”EcopointEcopoint is completely free to use for its community of members, from usercontent through to a standard listing for companies.
