Calling all digital entrepreneurs!

We're very lucky to catch another global internet entrepreneur, Vicky Wu (http://www.linkedin.com/in/thevickywu), whose recently moved her Hong Kong start-up, ZaoZao (https://www.shopzaozao.com/), to New York City to be incubated by CommerceWorks.

Zaozao is an e-commerce startup, selling one-of-a-kind pieces including jewellery, accessories and handbags in an online, curated marketplace. They are differentiated by their travelogue concept, engaging Western women in a destination-shopping adventure where they discover beautifully curated, one-of-a-kind pieces by up-and-coming Asian designers. ZAO means "early" ("早“)and "discover" (”找“)in Chinese.

In just over one year, ZaoZao has attracted users from over 20 countries, contacted 500+ designers across Asia and funded over 45 projects. And now she is about to pivot the business from "crowd-funding" to "curating" Asian designers.

Doors open at 6:30pm with the interview starting at 7:15pm on Wednesday 23rd October, 2013 at Bisous (http://www.bisous.com.hk/en/contact_us.php), 9/F, LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham St, Central, Hong Kong.

The entrance fee of HK$100 includes a complimentary drink and the opportunity to meet driven internet entrepreneurs and digital media folk.

Do bring along any budding female entrepreneurs as Vicky is sure to motivate them to leave their cushy banking jobs for the life of a launcher!
