About this event

Dawoon Kang, co-founder of dating website Coffee Meets Bagel: Dawoon and her co-founders became famous earlier this year for rejecting the largest offer ever made on the popular TV show Shark Tank after they turned down Mark Cuban's $30M offer for their company. They went on to raise $7.8M in Series A financing, and with that funding began their international expansion outside the US with Hong Kong as their first overseas market. Prior to CMB, Dawoon lived & worked in Korea, Japan, New York, India & Hong Kong, in a variety of roles that spanned from strategy & business development, marketing, research to investing/finance. She is a proud graduate of Stanford Graduate School of Business.
