For our 82nd social mixer (http://www.webwednesday.hk/2014/02/glam-it-at-web-wednesday-hong-kong-v82.html), we’re relocating to a smashing new venue, Club 18, Nos. 18-20 Lyndhurst Terrace in Central Hong Kong
To add to the sparkle of this new nightclub, we’ve invited a multi-talented guest speaker, Jennifer Cheng (http://www.linkedin.com/in/jennifercheng), Founder and Chief Glam Girl at Glam-it! (http://www.glam-it.com/), to share her experience in building, promoting and selling internet ventures.
After graduating from Brown University, Jennifer started her career as an actress and model in the US. She moved to study an MBA at Hong Kong University of Technology (http://www.ust.hk/eng/index.htm), from where she became a passionate player in the world of internet technology and social media in Hong Kong.
She cut her teeth working with Darizi (http://wedding.darizi.com/) (大日子) and Rackspace (http://www.rackspace.hk/) and then leapt into the fast-paced world of online group buying, first with uBuyiBuy (http://www.crunchbase.com/company/ubuyibuy-com) (a former guest at Web Wednesday), which via an acquisition became Groupon Hong Kong (http://www.groupon.hk/), and then as Vice President of BeeCrazy (http://www.beecrazy.com/) (蜂買) which was acquired by iBuy Group (http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20131217005556/en/Leading-Asian-e-Commerce-Company-iBuy-Group-Raises) before listing on the Australian Stock Exchange.
Jennifer's current venture is Glam-it!, a beauty and fashion brand with the patent pending GlamPact available at Harvey Nichols and 6 countries via Luxola.com (http://luxola.com/).
