About this event

We are proud to introduce you to the second Startup Grind University UCAS event of the year: Join for free our fireside chat with star entrepreneur, artist and TV host Dominic Johnson-hill.

Dominic Will introduce us to his insane story to success: From failing all his exams in school, arriving in China at the age of 21 with no education or money, to become an award-winning entrepreneur and television presenter. Dominic will share his story of setting up market research network covering 20 cities in China in the early 90s to creating Beijing’s iconic street ware and design company Plastered 8 (创可贴8) by pulling off crazy marketing stunts and then becoming a regular on Chinese and British TV.

Not only this, but Dominic also single handily transformed a small unknown hutong called Nan Luo Gu Xiang, into becoming one of the most popular tourist and shopping destinations in Beijing and around the globe.

Dominic’s high energy story telling skills take us through how he harnessed what were his perceived weaknesses at school and turned them into super powers in being a foreign entrepreneur in China.
