A forum entitled, "Women on the Digital Edge of Innovation" was held at the Fairmont Beijing, on June 30.
Organized by Brunswick, an advisory firm specializing in critical issues and corporate relations, the forum was aimed at women's career development, as well as opportunities and challenges faced by female entrepreneurs in the digital age.
Deng Jin, co-founder of Boya Kids, an online parenting platform for children aged 5-12 and their parents, first shared her entrepreneurial experience with the audience.
Deng said that by establishing Boya Kids, she hoped to provide children with more common knowledge beyond their education in the classroom and help the younger generation become well-educated young citizens with extensive knowledge and independent thoughts.
Before her foray into entrepreneurship, Deng worked as a senior editor at the Southern Weekly; she also was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University in 2012-2013.
Zhan Yuanyuan, founder of NIWO, a social networking platform for women, also gave a speech at the gathering.
As a former high-level executive in a foreign company, Zhan decided to start her own business after she became a mother.
Focused on the career development of women aged from 30 to 45, Zhan set an example for women who wanted to keep learning and self-promoting. She hopes her entrepreneurial experience can help women to become more independent.
The organizer also invited Liu Yueming, owner of Beijing Sunny & Beautiful Farm; and Wu Nan, co-founder and chief editor of All China Tech to talk about their entrepreneurial experiences at the forum.
Both of the female entrepreneurs used their innovative abilities and optimistic spirits to encourage women to insist on their dreams with a view to achieving success.
