BLNDED Founders Series | Lan Chu

Growing up, I never thought “I’m gonna be an entrepreneur,” but I knew that I wanted to make a difference.

Raised in Vietnam, I was brought up in an entrepreneur environment. Now when I visit my birth place, I realize all my family members are entrepreneurs. They wake up early and hustle their way through life by working hard. I’ve always known that somewhere deep down, business is instilled in my blood, so now I’m leading my life with it.

I worked with Vi Nguyen on projects three years prior to when she asked me to hop on to cofound Homads. I said yes immediately because I knew we both worked well in the past together, but I didn’t realize it was more than just starting a company. I went in with minimal experience of what a startup should be, and didn’t realize that I was going to be in a “startup.”

It’s been over a year since we started Homads and I am very blessed to have a wonderful cofounder. We have grown up so much as individuals and collectively as business partners. Life with Homads is extremely fast pace, but it’s been a wonderful journey. There is so much I want to do in my existence, and Homads is where I will start this journey, but it will definitely not be the end of my venture to help others.
