Dumpling Dudez Entrepreneurial Story

11 June 2020
Venue: Virtual
Location: United States of America

There’s nothing better than taking that leap of faith into something new with your best friend, and for Mike and Chih of the Dumpling Dudez, their love is DUMPLINGS!

Like many entrepreneurs, they began with a leap of faith into a world they knew little about. They come from corporate oil and gas backgrounds and worked in corporate America for 15 years before pursuing their dumpling dreams. They were so busy building dreams for others, they forgot how to dream themselves. They were comfortable, but weren’t fulfilled. They wanted more out of life, and were willing to risk it all to follow their dreams and pursue their passions. On April 1st, 2019, they did it! They both quit their jobs and DumplingDudez™ was born.

Mike and Chih will share their journey of starting their own company, battling self doubts, overcoming challenges, social media strategies, and B2B and B2C marketing tips.

For those Houston members that join the call, there will be dumplings waiting for you to pick up on Saturday, June 20th. More details to follow regarding pick up.
