Mr. Alan Au was amazing host!! His energy and humor made everyone happy. He introduced all of our great speakers.

I had a chance to share our vision of #StartupFire to everyone. I started to #StartupFire for Love ❤️ .  Just want to tell everyone that ‘you are CEO in your life’. You are Gifted!!!

You can go to big startup events in Silicon Valley, and look up to the most successful CEOs to learn and get inspirations, its very important, and i myself love going those events and we also support to promote as well. However, how many friends do you get from the big events? Maybe you introduce yourself to startup booths, and exchanged your business cards, and get 10 cards, but zero friends. If you ever come to our #StartupFire event, we help you to get many friends at least 10 friends. I asked everyone to make 3 friends in the beginning, otherwise people couldn’t take a seat, and i wouldn’t start my talk.

#StartupFire we help you to be a star!! We ask you to get a microphone to introduce yourself to everyone. We want you to feel happier to get many friends during the networking time. We do this for FREE, it does not meant the price is free, it means Free to share your big ideas, knowledge to get your true friends. We are KAZOKU (Family). We ❤️  You. Love is the Answer❤️#FreeMovement by #StartupFire.
