A natural-born entrepreneur, Aaron has been using his business acumen to launch successful projects ever since he was 17. A University of Southern California graduate, he’s co-founded five companies spanning fashion, events and e-commerce, including Shopame.com, which he sold to the South China Morning Post in 2015.
His most recent, Dash Serviced Suites, aims to provide conveniently located, all-inclusive serviced apartments for a little bit less in a city notorious for its sky-high rents. Professionals with a penchant for luxury living just love it; since launching in 2014, Dash has hit occupancy rates of nearly 100 per cent, throwing a spanner into the Hong Kong hospitality scene.
Besides Dash, Aaron is also an angel investor and philanthropist. In recent months, he’s been working on a new charity, Time Auction, which aims to empower aspiring young entrepreneurs by giving them an opportunity to meet and learn from Hong Kong mentors and business heavyweights.
