2018 International Forum with International Council for Small Business(ICSB)

CNIAC co-organized an International Forum with International Council for Small Business(ICSB) at Taipei New Horizon on June 28, 2018. Tina Y. LO, Director of the Board from CNAIC, also the Vice Chairman of O-BANK delivered welcoming remarks to the forum.

Ms. Lo noted that as a female financier and entrepreneur herself, she understands how challenging for a woman to start up new ventures. She has been a devoted advocate for young entrepreneurs, holding the WeWin Entrepreneurship Competition for 10 years in Taiwan, which has resulted in the launch of 23 successful new ventures and start-ups. She hopes the innovation of business can make this world a more inclusive and sustainable place for future generations.

Following Ms. Lo’s remarks are sessions on Women in High Growth Entrepreneurship and Humane Entrepreneurship. The first session moderated by ICSB’s President-elect, Geralyn Franklin, focused around the phenomena of women’s entrepreneurship and how women business owners are viewed as a potential source of economic and social development. The panelists also included Ms. Viola Cheng, the founder of B-Lab certified “Good Food Enterprise”, and Ms.Elim Chew, founder of 77th Street Pte Ltd.

During the second session on the Humane Entrepreneurship, Audrey Tang, Minister without Portfolio for Taiwan Executive Yuan, Dr. Roberto Parente, Full Professor of Innovation; Entrepreneurship-University of Salerno(Italy) and Dr. Ki-Chan Kim, Professor of Business School, The Catholic University of Korea were invited to be part of the panelists.

Dr. Kim believes that strong innovation relies on the participation of employees, so it is a must that management should maintain a balance between human-oriented and profit-oriented leadership. If the balance is achieved, it will contribute to the more sustainable company. Dr. Parente mentioned that the corporate culture in Italy is for sustainable management, so the Italian employees do not work overtime. In addition, he pointed out that human-oriented enterprises must also make commitments to employees while pursuing customers’ loyalty.

The forum was well attended by around 200 people from more than 18 countries.
