Six Vietnamese startups made strong impressions at a crowdfunding event in Ho Chi Minh City this week, highlighting the role of women in business management and grabbing the attention of experts among the 200-strong audience who later pledged funds and support for their projects.
Crowdfunding is not a new thing, but events to promote startups founded by women like the one in Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday are few and far between.
Mouna Aouri, the founder of Woomentum which organized the event, said the lack of women in business management positions is a global matter.
“We want to build a bridge to help women’s startups acquire what they need to develop their businesses. Our message is that you can do everything,” Aouri said to open the CrowdFundHer Live event on Tuesday.
The CrowdFundHer Live event in Ho Chi Minh City drew nearly 200 people on Tuesday.
