Accelerate the change. Nominate a female entrepreneur for a free RISE ticket.

RISE’s Women in Tech initiative is a little step we’re taking to improve the gender ratio. We know that female participation in the tech industry is still a big issue, and it’s one we’d like to tackle, even in a small way. That’s why we’re offering 10,000 free tickets for female entrepreneurs across all our events. To nominate a female entrepreneur or an executive who’s thinking about becoming an entrepreneur, all you need to do is fill in this form. It only takes a moment. Today we’re excited to announce three more speakers who will be joining us in Hong Kong.
