Goodbye Hyper-consumption, Hello Collaborative Consumption.  At the April #Rethink event, Roo Rogers will lead the discussion as we explore the new collaborative economy and how we are witnessing the emergence of a new economy based on sharing, bartering, and redistribution.   

When he founded Redscout Ventures in January 2010, Roo Rogers immediately set into motion the opportunity for the company to apply their ability to grow businesses to the realm of new enterprises. Leveraging the company’s raw intelligence and creative capacity, Roo launched Redscout  to concentrate on creating new projects, support existing entrepreneurial companies with their growth plans and advise private equity firms on cultivating their clients’ businesses. Turning the strategy inwards, he also treats Redscout as one of his ventures, constantly on watch for expansion opportunities including acquisitions and partnerships. 

Working at the intersection of entrepreneurism and social responsibility for the majority of his career, Roo most recently served as the co-founding partner of OZOlab, the fund and incubator for environmental start-ups, and the former CEO of OZOcar, the eco-friendly car service. In 2004, Roo founded we:nited magazine – a youth politics magazine and website. In 2000, he launched Drive Thru Pictures and Drive Thru Films, the award-winning British and American film company devoted to communicating social issues to mass youth audiences and whose clients included the BBC, MTV and the Rolling Stones. After working for Medecins Du Monde/UNICEF in South Sudan, Roo co-founded UNITY TV, a start-up initially funded by the United Nations and the BBC. 

Roo is the co-author of What’s Mine is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption, delving into understanding the exploding economy of collaborative consumption. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Columbia College and his Master’s degree in Economic Development from University College London. He sits on the boards of Medecins Du Monde UK (Doctors of the World) and the Bronx Community Charter School.
