#girlbosshk is a campaign initiated by BLOOM co-working space to encourage and help female entrepreneurs in Hong Kong to fellow their dream and achieve their goals. BLOOM will be hosting events and providing resources as well as creating a female entrepreneurs community to share and support each other.
What a honour we had at BLOOM co-working space last night with Oscar-winner – Ruby Yang. Ruby is a Hong Kong film maker and director and with her film “The Blood of Yingzhou District”, won the 79th Academy Awards for Best Documentary Short Subject. Ruby has a new documentary “Ritoma རུ་སྟོད་མ།” premiered just days ago. The film was shot high on the Tibetan Plateau. Ruby and her crew followed Dechen Yeshi, the founder of Norlha Textiles, a social enterprise that not only changes the declining life of the shepherds but successfully engaged the women in their community. We are also very excited to be able to have Miss Dechen Yeshi also at the event to talk about her social enterprise. Not only that, BLOOM co-working is having a popup store for Norlha Textiles. What a wonder series of events! Thank you for our 2 special guests, and the participants who came for this event and all the people who visited the popup store (especially those who made purchases).
