Three steps toward success: AAPI women discuss entrepreneurship

Asian-American Pacific Islander women gave out insightful advice for female entrepreneurs at the first Celebrate Asia Pacific Entrepreneurs panel on March 30.

The panel, called “(Her)story: Conversations with Entrepreneurial AAPI Women,” included Lorraine Yu, founder and president of Sirius 6 Corporation, Susie Lee, chief executive officer and co-founder of Siren, Maureen Francisco, co-executive producer of NW Productions and Mina Yoo, founder of Lulabop Inc.

Prior to entrepreneurship, these women worked in different careers. Yu’s industry involved computer-science and chemistry, Lee’s involved biophysics and art, Francisco’s involved media and entertainment and Yoo’s involved academia.

The CAPE project is a four-month-long enterprise run by Hing Hay Coworks with the goal of showcasing the stories of creative entrepreneurs with deep ties to the region’s Asia Pacific Rim community.
