MinorMynas - AIA Edge

Hear ye! Hear ye!

Prepare for the youngest and punchiest guest speaker that Web Wednesday has ever had!

Winner of the AIA Emerging Entrepreneur Challenge, Hilary Yip (11 years old!), will be joining us on Wednesday 1st June at Orange Peel to talk about her journey so far and tell us how her new venture, MinorMynas, will make learning a new language fun for children.

After appearing on the same stage as Elon Musk at the InvestHK Venture Capital Forum, and wooing the hearts and minds of the attendees, Hilary has taken Hong Kong by storm!

She's funded her idea and made convincing pitches at the Singularity University Master Class and UXHK. She has even appeared alongside a slightly older entrepreneur, Dr. Allan Zeman, as a founding member of Metta.

For those of you who are attending the RISE Conference, you will find Hilary's energy and gentleness a refreshing break and inspiring story.

The evening will start with introductory comments from Steve Monaghan, the Head of Innovation at AIA Edge.

We're hosting the event at Orange Peel, 2/F, 38-44 D'Aguilar Street, Central, Hong Kong. Doors open at 6:30pm with the talk kicking off at 7:15pm. There will be an entrance fee of HK$100 which includes a complimentary drink.

See who else is coming and sign up on Facebook or MeetUp.

We will be donating 10% of the entrance fee to Hong Kong Dog Rescue, Hilary's favourite charity.
