Workbench Galway, 19 Eyre Square
Free entry, light refreshments

February marks the start of the Lunar Calendar year in Asian communities and it’s also the month to celebrate the Spring Festival. Why don’t we take the opportunity to join together for a celebration and learn about the Asian startup ecosystem?

Meet JCI Galway President Carol Ho and she will share with you what you have to know about the up-and-coming Asian startup scene!

Carol Ho is the President of Junior Chamber International Galway in 2018. She is a digital marketer and the co-founder of Impact Hub Hong Kong, the local branch in Hong Kong of the international social innovation and tech startup co-working space and community.

She was the President of Junior Chamber International East Kowloon (Hong Kong) last year, winner and organizer of Startup Weekend Hong Kong, organizer of Next Step Challenge in Hong Kong that helped the winning startups to raise more than €600,000 seed funding.

Carol is very active in the Asian startup communities and was the speaker at various popular startup events in the region, such as TechCrunch China, International ICT Expo in Hong Kong and Meet Taipei Startup Carnival in Taiwan.

Apart from sharing stories and experiences, all the attendees will receive a “red packet” of lucky money, a symbol of blessings and good fortune. They will also have the opportunity to learn to write Chinese Calligraphy!

This promises to be a celebration of Asian culture and business that is not only interesting and fun, but also useful and informative.

Register now and celebrate the New Year together!

This event is free. Light refreshment will be provided.

Junior Chamber International (JCI) is a global network for young professionals and entrepreneurs in their 20’s and 30’s.
