Are you a female entrepreneur looking to scale your business?

You’ve come to the right place – FoundHer is here to celebrate your ambitions.

We want to make sure that every female founder has the opportunities, connections and capital she needs. Founding a business and raising capital to scale has never been easy, and Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on the growth plans of female founders across the world. We’re here to change that.

AllBright’s research shows that 1 in 3 women in Hong Kong plan to start a business post-pandemic, and our week-long virtual celebration of female founders in Hong Kong, hosted in proud partnership with HSBC Private Banking, will equip you with everything you need to launch and take your business to the next level.

FoundHer is a unique opportunity to boost your skills, confidence and connections. You will hear inspiring stories from those who have built and sold successful businesses, and take part in workshops designed to get you investment ready. In a landscape where only 2.2% venture capital funding goes to female founder teams, FoundHer will celebrate the ambitions of those looking to scale businesses in Hong Kong.

Make this the week that changes everything.

Over the course of our partnership, AllBright and HSBC Private Banking have hosted…

It’s time to change the statistics and make sure every female founder has the opportunities, connections and capital she needs to scale.
