"Ping Chu is a serial entrepreneur who founded the Ripplemaker Foundation in 2010 in order to support young entrepreneurs in realizing their dreams. He believes that small businesses are the ideal platform to experiment with the profit-for-purpose business model. He is passionate about sustainable lifestyles, conscious businesses, social innovations and young entrepreneur mentorship. The title of his book “Businessmaker, Daymaker, Ripplemaker” aptly sums up his philosophy. This core philosophy underpins all his businesses in lifestyle retail, restaurant, beauty school, and Red Room (a social innovation which promotes poetry, music and all forms of creative expressions). Since 2005, he has established the annual “Daymaker Awards” as a tribute to his heroes in Taiwan."
