The Young Professionals eXpo (YPX) is the annual marquee event presented by the Museum of Chinese in America and the Young Professionals (YPs) of MOCA.
Last year, YPX 2010 brought nearly 300 of New York City’s young professionals together to celebrate Asian American culture, creativity and couture.
This year, YPX 2011 celebrates cultural and community connections. The event will pose some big questions: what connects me to you? What connects us to the past? What connects the past to the future?
The heart of the celebration will be the inauguration of the second class of M88 honorees: young Chinese Americans who have transcended boundaries, convention and stereotype on their way to achieving extraordinary success.
Confirmed YPX 2011 honorees thus far:
- Rachael Chong – founder & CEO of www.catchafire.org, a network connecting non-profits with skilled volunteers
- Chieh Huang, William Fong, and Chris Cheung – founders of Astro Apes, a mobile gaming company recently purchased by Zynga
- Sean Leow – founder of neocha.com, an online community for artists in China
YPX 2011 also marks the kick-off of Digital MOCA: an extension of the MOCA experience onto the immersive, always-on web. Spearheaded by MOCA Trustee – and cofounder and CEO of TheKnot.com (now XO Group) – David Liu, Digital MOCA aspires to be the virtual fabric for the community, connecting us all in our increasingly digital lives.
