Mike Hagbeck

Leasing empty space is a brisk and big business in Singapore. When Australian entrepreneur Mike Hagbeck arrived in Singapore in 2001, he promptly started Store-It! Self Storage following a successful 2-year stint with a start-up – a wine storage company in Sydney. Mike’s business has since evolved and expanded to 3 companies by persuading with Singaporeans to lease out idle space. Technology is the key to scale up operations and keep operating costs low through an app for clients to find a convenient location across Singapore. Challenges aside for start-up ventures – bureaucracy, technological hitches and legal matters – Mike, a skilful negotiator with astute business planning skills and proven sales and marketing experience, wants to max out every centimetre of empty space in space-starved Singapore.
