Abstract

While expanding population numbers, escalating rents, and shrinking apartment sizes may not seem like a desirable situation for most, Helen Ng, CEO of Lock+Store, sees opportunity. Lock+Store is a business that leases small spaces to individuals, households and businesses in a variety of shapes, forms and sizes, ranging from 16 to 300 square feet. Sometimes called "self-storage", "mini-storage", "short-storage", "wine-storage" or even "lockers", these micro warehousing businesses emerged in Singapore only ten years ago.
