MB May 2021 Special Report | 17 talented young people

Stephanie Chiang is involved in several projects, many of them as a volunteer. Combining women and technology is her greatest challenge.

With Stephanie Chiang’s profile, the question is where to begin. The 31-year-old was born in Costa Rica (Central America) and has resided in Macau since the end of her studies, pursued first in Beijing (University of International Business and Economics) and then in France (Toulouse Business School, 2014–2016).

Her academic specialization is in digital and event marketing, and work as a self-employed marketing consultant has been her main professional activity since 2017.

But Stephanie is much more.

She’s a co-founder of the Macao Startup Club, managing director of Girls in Tech – Macau (since 2019), co-founder of the Macau Entrepreneurship Club and one of the lead organizers of Startup Weekend Macau, TEDxSenadoSquare and Open House Macau. As one might imagine, she serves in much of these roles on a volunteer basis.

A special word about the project Girls in Tech, a non-profit organization created in 2007 in the US. Stephanie is the founder of the Macau branch of this initiative, which aims to build a safe, diverse and inclusive community for Macau women passionate about technology and entrepreneurship, offering educational and networking opportunities to help women discover their powers.

Stephanie is passionate about issues in technology, social value and women’s empowerment. And what she enjoys most is building meaningful communities and learning and growing together. She believes that small acts with the power of community can bring about huge impact. So, she’s not only a “Startup community builder” but a community builder in the broader sense.
