This is a special evening for female investors to connect at Taipei’s coolest hotspot, share info and support each other. The reason of hosting this gathering is hopefully soon we don’t need a “Women in -” series!
At the moment women still make up only less than 10% of the venture capital private equity world. Join us if you are the minority who are passionate about venture investing (both institutional & angel investors welcome).
We are joining forces with our awesome partner MOX this time, with a special guest Shannon Kalayanamitr – Venture Partner at Gobi Partners, Founder of Ikiqai Group, Co-Founder of Orami and a passionate equality advocate.
