Join us in Hong Kong for RISE. Sign up for two half-price tickets.

We held RISE for the first time this summer and welcomed an international network of world-class speakers, high-potential startups and some of the world’s biggest brands to Hong Kong.

We’re expecting RISE 2016 to be an even more amazing affair.

Take a look at three speakers who’ll be joining us next summer…

Diane Yu – Co-Founder & CTO – FreeWheel


As CTO of FreeWheel, Diane helps the likes of ESPN, Discovery and VEVO reach the right audience at the right time.

Freewheel helps the premium video industry to excel and powers the advertising businesses of some of the largest media and entertainment companies in the world like AOL, DIRECTV, Fox and NBC Universal.

Previously, Diane worked as VP of Engineering at Google subsidiary DoubleClick.

Hadi Wenas – CEO – MatahariMall


Having previously worked as co-CEO of aCommerce, Hadi joined MatahariMall as CEO this spring.

Matahari Mall is an Indonesian ecommerce platform covering the fashion, health and beauty, electronics, home, grocery, book, and entertainment industries.

Founded in February of this year, MatahariMall aims to hit $1 billion in sales in the next two to three years.

Louis Saha – Founder – AxisStars 


“Of all the centre-forwards we employed… Saha would be one of the best. He posed a perpetual threat.”

Quite an endorsement from Sir Alex Ferguson, especially considering Louis played on Manchester United teams alongside Wayne Rooney, Ruud van Nistlerooy and Dimitar Berbatov.

Having retired in 2013 Louis is now co-founder of Axis Stars – a company that helps professional athletes manage their finances and counts Didier Drogba and Mo Farah as clients.
