Starting a business can be one of the most empowering paths for any businessperson to follow. For women especially, it can lead to an exciting and fulfilling career that often lies beyond a glass ceiling at many conventional companies.
At this event on Wednesday, March 22, a panel of successful women entrepreneurs, both Japanese and non-Japanese, will share their experience forging their own paths: the reasons for doing so, challenges and rewards, and insights on entrepreneurship in Japan.
The panel and subsequent Q&A session with the audience will be moderated by Ms. Megumi Taoka, who has enjoyed a global career spanning London, New York, and Tokyo. Ms. Taoka now facilitates the development of aspiring entrepreneurs as a lecturer in the GLOBIS MBA programs.
GLOBIS University welcomes all men and women who are interested in exploring entrepreneurship to this unique event. Free food will be provided courtesy of Angkasa, an Indonesian restaurant launched by one of the participating entrepreneurs.
