When women do better, economies do better. The Women’s Foundation partners with Facebook and Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE) of The University of Hong Kong to announce a new initiative called #SheMeansBusiness in Hong Kong, an initiative dedicated to providing ongoing online and offline training for local female entrepreneurs to help them make the most of their business online and reach the potential customers globally. Facebook has successfully launched #SheMeansBusiness in some Asian and European countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, and the UK so far this year. We are proud to work with Facebook and FBE and a number of supporting partners to bring this meaningful economic program to Hong Kong, to meet the fast growth of local small- and medium-sized business.
