One legacy at a time
- Crowdfunding on smart contracts to allow creatives to self fund and go to the market for support directly.
- Enrich and enliven society to continue to create works of art that can be left behind for generations by sharing the works of creators across various platforms.
- By identifying the core values of creatives and marketing the ikibook platform, the ikibook team can reach out to the general public and attract corporate sponsors and those who believe in our mission to build a decentralised cultural bank and a sustainable ecosystem for creatives.
Iris Koh is the founder of ikibook Limited, a blockchain project for the Creative Industry. The project aims to allow creators to crowdfund, collaborate and support one another in projects which are meaningful to the community. Apart from this, she is also the CEO and director of ChorusArt Pte Ltd, the organiser for the Vienna Boys Choir concerts and activities in Singapore.
A pianist, choral conductor, vocal coach and composer, Iris is passionate about Music since young and has won scholarships with Yamaha Music School and her University College hostel. Her area of specialisation is Choral Conducting and Aural studies during her postgraduate years at the University of Queensland.
Since her return to Singapore in 1999, Iris has grown as a musician, educator as well as an entrepreneur. A large part of 2010-2016 was spent in learning business management, funding and consultancy working alongside her husband. She believes that this valuable time in learning about business trains her in the next phase as a business leader. She has also groomed several youths for great performance such as President’s challenge and the Music Director of the first TV musical produced in Singapore, School House Rockz etc.
Through the ikibook platform, she hopes to help users accelerate the process in finding their ikigai and leave a positive mark in the arts industry.
