For those that missed our 4th Anniversary of Cappuccino Connections last month, I shared my journey and answered the question ‘The real reason I build communities’. Here’s the video of my speech where I shared my personal journey.

This month – as part of our International Women’s Day edition of Cappuccino Connections – I am excited to welcome my ‘sisters-in-arms’ Pocket Sun, founder and president of SoGal Ventures, the first female-led millennial venture capital firm.

Pocket Sun was included in not only Forbes Asia’s 30 Under 30 but she also graced the cover of the magazine. She is a 2015 Top Voice in VC & Entrepreneurship on LinkedIn, one of the Top 40 Change Makers 2015 in Female Funders, and has been featured in Everwise for starting her own VC Fund.

Sun is influencing the global economy; come listen to and meet her at our special Women’s Day Cappuccino Connections this Wednesday (last few seats)!

​As a special International Women’s Day treat, Kim Robinson has kindly sponsored a complimentary cleanse, cut and finish at Takashimaya salon for each attendee of tomorrow’s event.
