2022.11.21Report on participation in Google Asia Women Startups Forum
Ms. Mariko Magnan, our CEO, participated in the Google for Startups Forum held in South Korea for four days from 14 to 17 November.
The program, organized by Google, aims to empower women founders across Asia, support their start-ups, and provide networking opportunities for their international expansion. In the 12 weeks since TPO was selected in August this year, Magnan has been actively engaged in a variety of activities while working hard with female founders from South Korea, Hong Kong, India, and other countries.
Magnan will use the insights and inspiration she gained from participating in the program as a springboard for the growth and development of TPO Inc. on a more global stage.

Women in Business in Japan
Nearly 20 years ago, Japan set a goal of increasing the percentage of women in management positions to 30% by 2020. However, the percentage has remained largely unchanged, rising only 0.1 percentage point each year, and still stands at about 8% today. And today, due to the impact of the new coronavirus, female promotion seems to have further stalled in its momentum.
This webinar featured a panel discussion among three women in top positions in Japan on the realities, experiences, challenges, and lessons to be learned from working in a male-dominated environment.
Ambassador Roxanne de Vilderling, Belgium’s first female Ambassador to Japan, gave the opening speech.
