In order to reach sustainable growth, businesses must prioritize a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) is a crucial component for the successful recruitment of top talent, which will in turn bolster a company’s future success.
Kdan Mobile is at the forefront of global mobile work, advocating for a diverse and inclusive workplace. We believe in the power of collaboration and dialogue to break down barriers and create an environment that is welcoming and supportive of everyone. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace, where everyone can be given an equal chance to succeed.
This year, we invited technology partners from all over the world to share their success stories and to encourage more female professionals from various backgrounds to join the tech industry. We are committed to helping all genders realize their potential in the technology workplace.
Let’s meet the women in tech we’re honoring on this Women’s Day.

Kim brings over 20 years of experience and a network of connections within the European and South Korean B2B markets to Kdan.
Kim’s expertise is invaluable, from delivering insights about software development in Europe to sharing her extensive knowledge of the potential opportunities in South Korea.

Jasmine Lin, Chief Executive Officer, rezio, KKday Group
Jasmine is a passionate pioneer in the software industry with numerous operational experiences in tech startups. After joining KKday in 2019, she built a team from scratch and launched a SaaS B2B product, “rezio,” a mobile booking solution for tours and activities that aims to digitize travel operators.
Lin attributes three key factors that allowed Rezio to gain key customers worldwide, despite the pandemic: being open to change, building a dependable local team, and valuing customer feedback. She shares that the most important thing is the ability to flexibly adjust the working structure according to the organizational goals. The team model is also important to help teammates develop a shared capability to face challenges, as well as to improve focus in achieving common goals and localizing operations when faced with different markets. Additionally, it is vital to have a quick response mechanism for operational issues and market development needs.
Jasmine has a sharp eye for targeting market opportunities, paired with a hands-on attitude. She believes in achieving success through trial and error. Jasmine credits her success to her openness to change, flexibility in adapting, as well as a shared capability to face challenges. These factors also help her maintain a diverse and inclusive workplace that promotes open-mindedness. Jasmine’s ultimate goal is to create global leading software made in Taiwan with her team!
