From mainstream finance to the front lines of social innovation, Ada Yip has turned her natural curiosity into a business advantage through good networking and opening herself up to opportunities. She is a co-founder of 43 Ventures, which supports social enterprises by addressing their funding and talent gaps, and the Executive Director of Urban Spring, which is committed to reducing single-use plastic waste by providing drinking water dispensers across Hong Kong. “It’s that combination,” she says. “Everything that happens is your own personal passion, but also opportunity.”
