An Entrepreneur’s Success Story


Presented by Mr. Samir Kumar, Founder & Managing Director, Sino Hero Foods Limited

In his talk Sam Kumar will discuss his “China Cheese Success Story”.  He will share the lessons learned, highlight the struggles and the inevitable setbacks and disappointments on the road to eventual entrepreneurial success.  From the initial startup idea and modest capital, Sam Kumar’s company became the largest exporter of cheese into China in a relatively short time.  Is such success possible without “Guanxi” and without speaking the language?  Many will say “no” but Sam has proved them wrong.  In his talk he will explain what really matters when selling into China including:

  • The highs of  the vision of business in China and the lows of the reality of business in China
  • Emerging opportunities in the China/India trade
  • Challenges of entrepreneurship and why it may not be for you

Sam Kumar will also discuss general lessons of entrepreneurship and talk about his new China-India business venture.  With his witty style it will be an entrepreneurial evening you don’t want to miss.

After the presentation, the session will continue in an interactive Q & A format where members and guests are encouraged to discuss relevant issues with our guest speaker.
