About this event

Amid the economic downturn, people are further examining their relationship with themselves and the external environment. The rapid development of the innovation ecosystem has made how women exercise and realize leadership, break personal identity barriers, and reshape themselves a topic of concern.

Against this backdrop, we have planned an event themed "Focus on Self, Embracing a Diverse Life" to explore how women can cross boundaries, break stereotypes, and bravely recognize and step out of the framework that defines themselves, focusing on and reshaping their true selves.

Holo Zheng, currently incubating startup companies and making early investments in a large European enterprise. Having studied and worked in five countries, her roles have ranged from semiconductor marketing to COO of a robotics company, from media producer to VP of a global innovation platform.

This event will revolve around Holo's personal experiences and professional insights, and we have invited Hao Zheng, co-founder of Quantisan, and Sheila Peng, founder of Zhuanyi Technology, to participate in a roundtable discussion about the entrepreneurial spirit of female leaders in different cultures and industries. We hope to inspire more women to pursue leadership roles, encourage them to innovate in their respective fields, and also provide participants with a platform for exchanging ideas, building connections, and growing together.
