Home 2016 Entrepreneur Connect Forum
On November 10, 2016, Credit Suisse hosted the Entrepreneur Connect Forum in Hong Kong. This prestigious forum seeks to bring together established and next-generation business leaders and entrepreneurs to discuss key aspects of entrepreneurship, business development and strategies for success. The Hong Kong event follows the equally successful inaugural Credit Suisse Entrepreneur Connect Forum staged in August in Singapore.
A Dynamic Forum for Networking and Sharing Ideas
In his welcome Address to the 130 guests who attended the event, Helman Sitohang, CEO, Asia Pacific, Credit Suisse, commented: "We at Credit Suisse are dedicated to serving our clients as The Trusted Entrepreneurs' Bank of Asia Pacific. The Entrepreneur Connect is an excellent forum that gathers entrepreneurially-minded individuals to network and share ideas in an environment that fosters innovation, and cultivates ideas that disrupt convention."
Sitohang also noted that he believes Asia Pacific offers one of the most dynamic environments for entrepreneurism and innovation, and that the region is home to many vibrant and growing emerging economies.
Strong Spirit of Entrepreneurism
The spirit of entrepreneurism is at the core of the Credit Suisse's Asia Pacific strategy, just as it is in the DNA of the bank's clients. Credit Suisse is committed to making significant investments of capital and resources into the region and to ensuring that it puts to work the full strength of the bank's wealth management and investment banking capabilities for the benefit of clients in Asia Pacific - many of whom are themselves dynamic and resourceful entrepreneurs. In doing so, Credit Suisse's aim is to help them capture the growth opportunities in their businesses, while supporting their private wealth needs throughout the phases of their wealth cycle.
