We are very pleased to announce that Venny Chan will be our next guest speaker at TEN.

Venny is an entrepreneur who has built her business around a neglected niche - providing offsite student accommodation in Hong Kong.

In just 4 years she and her partners have achieved market leadership, having become the official off-campus accommodation partner to a number of leading educational institutions.

Venny will talk about how she identified this niche and started the company, how the business model works, and the challenges and rewards of becoming the market leader. She will also share her current strategy to further develop the student / young professionals market in HK and Guangdong.

This will be a very worthwhile event and will provide useful insights for entrepreneurs, business owners and investors in Hong Kong.

After the presentation, the session will continue in an interactive Q&A format where members and guests are encouraged to discuss relevant issues with our guest speakers.

This event is FREE for members of TEN and of METTA and HK$100 for non-members and guests.
