Asian American white-collar professionals are the least likely group to be promoted from individual contributor roles to management — less likely than any other race. The overrepresentation of AsAm's as business owners can be due to economic & social factors, such as not finding a decent job or not being treated well in the labor market.
We created a community in which Asian entrepreneurs & professionals from around the world can network, learn from each other, & build meaningful connections. Since Nov. 2019, we've grown our community to 100K+ members across all of our social media platforms, in over 100 countries, with 1M impressions achieved in a month.
We created a paid directory outside of our Facebook platform, in which members can create a profile & connect with other members in a more meaningful way. Since Facebook has limited capability of finding others based on certain criteria, members can use our platform to list their name, business name, location, role, industry, etc. Monthly subscription tiers range from $1 to $5/month, which we plan on increasing as we roll out more benefits.
In 2022, we plan to integrate media publication & video streaming into our paid subscription model. We plan to license existing Asian films & sign on new films from emerging entrepreneurs, artists, & creatives. Members will be able to leverage AHN to showcase their work on our platform. Additionally, we plan to highlight stories, news, & fun facts to provide readers with content relating to Asian entertainment, culture, artists & films, and more.
AHN generates a majority of its revenue through networking events, sponsorships, & brand deals. Many corporations want visibility from either small business owners or minority groups; & AHN has engagement from both of these groups. Some of our previous sponsors include Citibank, Comcast, McDonald's, Kia, & Lowe's.
