How to Break Through the Bamboo Glass Ceiling in Tech: 10 Asian American Tech Titans

Entrepreneur Series - Part 3

How to Break Through the Bamboo Glass Ceiling in Tech: 10 Asian American Tech Titans is the last of our three-part Entrepreneur talks.

The biggest wealth transfer in history from one generation to the next is at least $16 trillion of wealth will be passed on to the next generation over this period.  
Moreover, there’s never been a time in our human history where so many valuable companies created in such a short period of time (f.g. WeWork, Uber, Airbnb, Stripe).  But, who is really in control of these massive successful startups?  Harvard Business Research has found that Asian Americans are the least likely group in the US to be promoted to management.  With 48% share of the Silicon Valley professional workforce, why are only 25% of the executives are Asian?

Hear the presentation on the lessons learned from 10 Asian American Tech Titans and how they busted through the glass ceiling by creating their own floor and how they started companies that are worth billions today.

Gifts from sponsors will be raffled off to lucky winners at the end of the event. Prizes include gift cards and assorted prizes. Must be present to receive prizes.
