Building a Startup - From Idea to Business

Startup Series at Agora Space: Entrepreneur Panel 


An impressive lineup of entrepreneurs will share the fundamentals to build a successful startup and how to avoid common mistakes 



70% of startups don't last the first year and 90% close down in the second year, so how do people do it? Entrepreneurs are making a lot of mistakes, most of the time they are the same mistakes over and over again. We created this event as part of Agora Space’s startup series so that successful entrepreneurs can share their stories and mistakes so that you know how to avoid similar traps.

CO-ORGANIZERS


KAWO is WeChat and Weibo management platform headquartered in Shanghai. The first version of KAWO translated posts from a brand's Facebook and Twitter accounts for easy publishing on Chinese social media platforms. Realising translation alone was an insufficient business model, the Company pivoted to become a management platform. Since then, KAWO has grown to become the #1 platform for global brands building a social presence in China, with thousands of posts being published for some of the top brands in the world on a weekly basis.


LUÜNA, a female-led company that enhances the lives of women and girls through purposeful period care. They make chemical-free products, provide taboo-free knowledge and support period education for those in need. With a drive for women empowerment, the Company gives a portion of all profits to menstrual health education initiatives in Asia, providing the necessary support to create genuine change. By working with female-led, female-focused initiatives, they aim to deepen their impact. 


Let’s Make Great! is a creative consultancy focused on the next 100 years of innovation in China. As a cross-disciplinary team of strategists, designers, and innovators, their passion and specialty is guiding corporate teams to systematically solve ‘first time ever’ challenges.
