Have you ever wanted to open a restaurant, start your own business, or manage your own brand? If so, don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dine and dish with one of Forbes Magazines 40 Under 40!

Kenny Lao, Brown '98, founder of Rickshaw Dumpling Bar, has garnered national attention for the unique dumpling bars (and dumpling trucks) that have sprouted up all around New York City. Kenny will be joined by his partner and fellow NYU Stern School of Business alum David Weber, Yale '99.

Together, Kenny and David will share their experiences in business, marketing practices, getting through tough times and how they turned their personal passions into a business and culinary success! Learn how Rickshaw Dumplings became the first destination of choice for Martha Stewart after serving her time, and how they attracted the attention of a Michelin-starred consulting chef, Anita Lo. Learn what it takes to launch a new business and succeed in one of the toughest restaurant markets.

Join us for an evening of complimentary beer, dumplings and other dishes, and network with other like-minded entrepreneurs! This event is open to alumni, current students, family, and friends.
