Entrepreneurship has traditionally been and still is considered a man’s domain. Nowadays, however, more and more women are breaking through the glass ceiling and establish themselves as successful entrepreneurs in Europe, as well as in Asia. Besides discussing chances and the potential need for action for the future of global women entrepreneurship, Debating Asia #2 will compare the current situations and recent developments in Germany and Southeast Asia, and more specifically in the Philippines.
The conversation will be joined by undersecretary Nora Terrado, currently leading the promotion of the Philippine’s domestic and international trade, industry, and investments. Declared one of the 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World by Global FWN100™ in 2014 and 2016, her areas of expertise include Gender, Development, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Paula Schwarz, founder of StartupBoat, will talk about her personal experiences as a young female entrepreneur and will help to point out differences and similarities between both start-up ecosystems and how they might learn from one another.
