The recent StartmeupHK has been a successful and inspiring event! Check out some of the notable talks from Carousell CEO Quek Siu Rui and “personal branding” discussion from DJ Mick! (+ shoutout also to Mack Fitt Pijewski, Frankie Tung & Dewi Khairunnisa for giving us a glimpse of their work life!)
Thoughts on the event:
Startmeup HK 2019 was a great event as it showcased startups, investors, industry leaders and experts. Everyone was able to interact and network with each other. In addition to that, attendees of the event were given good tips and best practices about the industry of business and entrepreneurship. As what we’ve learned from Carousell CEO and DJ Mick, customer service and personal branding are both crucial for brands today and it is important to not ignore them.
Just a friendly advice: it’s about time we stop with the “female entrepreneurship” thing and just call it “entrepreneurship.” It’s already 2019, and women should not be separated from men. We all share the same industry! Equality is very important so we must cultivate a culture of love, acceptance and respect.
With regards to the language chosen for the event, it is understandable that some speakers would go for the traditional chinese (their first language). But in the spirit of consideration, it would be amazing to see at least a “live translation” on the LED screen so visitors from other countries won’t feel neglected.
Overall, it was a great conference!
