RentShare is a Brooklyn start-up that allows renters to pay their rent and share expenses with roommates online. CEO Ian Halpern founded RentShare in his Clinton Hill apartment as a “social payment platform” designed for the uniquely interdependent and transitory nature of rental real estate in the city. It eliminates, says Halpern, the need for young people to use their checkbooks, already a dying commodity, and allows them to tailor, track, and keep a record of shared expenses and rent for multiple, changing roommates. So if you’re still looking for your checkbook or waiting for that 36 dollars your roommate never paid you for ConEd, get onto RentShare while it’s still free!
