About the Event
“No Pain, No Gain” is a periodic event that will highlight China-based entrepreneurs with roots at Stanford University. Entrepreneurs will discuss the challenges they faced and how they overcame them. Using the Graduate School of Business’ state-of-the-art distance learning technology, there will be audiences at Stanford and at the Stanford Center at Peking University (SCPKU).
The discussion will take the form of a structured conversation between the entrepreneur and a moderator, either a professor from the GSB or a subject matter expert selected for his or her familiarity with the entrepreneur and/or the sector.
This time, two young female entrepreneurs, Gu Ji MBA '12, Cordy Xie MBA '16, are invited to share their stories and what is the biggest challenges facing them when starting the new ventures.
On the Stanford side the audience will consist of current Stanford students and GSB alumni with an interest in entrepreneurship in China. In Beijing the audience will consist of Stanford alumni and current students at Peking University and Tsinghua University. The event will be in English. Admission to this event is free of charge.
