Asian Women Social Entrepreneurs Seminar in Bangkok

Poster of Asian Women Social Entrepreneurs Seminar

Fast-growing Asia, especially the Mekong region, faces the issue of how to utilize the power of women to both ensure economic growth and combat social issues.

The Asian Women Social Entrepreneurs Seminar, to be held from July 30 to August 1, is intended for women seeking to solve social issues through business, including NGO executives who want to shift from a donation-based business model to a more sustainable one, as well as up-and-coming women social entrepreneurs.

The purpose of this seminar is to articulate the challenges and opportunities for women social entrepreneurship, harness the necessary resources, and create a network to empower these women leaders.

There are also plans to develop a scheme that links the participants with business partners and resources, and that supports their current and future business endeavors following the seminar.
