Bill Rutten

Head of Community & Co-Founder


Bill has a background in Economics with Masters in innovation and sustainability. He soon discovered that his true passion lies with entrepreneurship; this is the way to change the game. It wasn’t until he had traveled the world and landed in Australia that he became hungry and foolish enough to start a project of his own. Ecoshift was born. Bill has since worked as an innovation consultant, ran a startup accelerator and started a project called Food Hero that tackles food waste with a business model. 

These days he is Head of Community and Co-Founder @ TwoSpace. Growing Melbourne while creating a world class culture is where his head is at. 

Ludwina Dautovic

The Room Xchange

Ludwina Dautovic is the CEO and Founder of The Room Xchange, an online platform that connects time poor households with guests who provide 2 hours of help around the house each day in exchange for food and accommodation. Ludwina has successfully raised capital over $500k in her seed round and will be sharing the unconventional way she did it. www.theroomxchange.com
