Event Details

Co-hosting with Dream Impact and Anima Venture, AmCham is organizing a virtual mixer as the closing event for our IWD initiatives for 2022 with the theme of #BreakTheBias.


It has never been a better time to launch your ideas… or is it? The number of tools, networks, information online, and infrastructure are numerous, and, much of it, freely available. Yet the number of women creating new ventures are still vastly outnumbered by men, even in a developed market, like Hong Kong.


Common factors that stand out range from self-confidence, risk-appetite to a perceived lack of support and role models, both in the startup and social innovation space. Ultimately, it is never just one element, but multiple headwinds that challenge us.


We hope to break down these barriers at our multi-themed IWD Mixer. We're bringing together guest speakers to share their hard-earned experiences moving from years of corporate culture to the fast-paced world of startups. Each guest speaker will informally share their experience with you at a roundtable. What's more, you will get to interact with the speakers and other guests in a close virtual setting ( i.e no breakout rooms!) and have the opportunity to actually meet and greet everyone else at this event.


We look forward to you joining us on 31 March to close out a fantastic month of IWD!
