In this episode of Entrepreneurs For Good, I speak with the extraordinary David Yeung about his work to build and scale Asia’s largest plant-based lifestyle brand.
CO-Founder of Green Common, he has experienced a period exponential growth over the last four years. Growing from a small team who were stabilizing their first stores in Hong Kong, to a team of more than 400 that now has 10 stores in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Singapore.
Through this time, David’s work has been recognized by the Schwab Foundation, Ernst & Yong, PETA Asia, Time, and HK Tatler for his work, and he is regularly asked to speak at events around the world to speak about his vision for a sustainable future.
There are few mission driven entrepreneurs whose views are scale could me more inspiring, and educational, as David’s, and I hope that you will enjoy our conversation.
